Riverdale Senior Services, Inc. (RSS, Inc.) is a multi-purpose non-profit agency whose mission is to promote the physical, intellectual, social and emotional well-being of older adults in the Northwest Bronx. RSS, Inc.’s programs are designed to encourage and enable seniors to continue living independently, with dignity, with their families and in their own homes.
In 1974, RSS Founder Julia Blumenthal and her colleagues set out to improve the lives of seniors in the Riverdale community. Riverdale Senior Center opened with the mission of providing a place where people could meet friends, share a meal and learn from one another. As we have grown, we’ve responded to the changing needs and interests of the vital, diverse senior population of the Northwest Bronx. In addition to a daily delicious lunch, RSS now offers a full range of exercise, cultural, health management and social programs, as well as a wide array of social and behavioral health services. We continue to evolve to meet our members’ needs, and hope you will join us, at no cost, to sample all we have to offer!
