SUPPORT CEI:

Over 35 years of making a difference for East Bay seniors

Support from donors like you is essential to our mission. You help us reach a greater number of low-income seniors. You also provide things that are vital to their well-being, but aren’t eligible for government reimbursements.

Partners Making a Difference

Partners help us leverage our resources and expand our outreach. Our partners install safety equipment in seniors’ homes, deliver hot meals, co-sponsor activities, and much more. Their donations fund home repairs, events that get isolated seniors out of their homes, education that inspires caregivers, and major healthcare initiatives.
