What’s new with Valley Senior Services?

COVID-19 Updates

With the wellbeing of our clients and seniors as the primary focus, Valley Senior Services meal sites remain closed for congregate dining through January 2021, amid concerns surrounding the potential risk of COVID-19. In making the decision to remain closed, we are following the North Dakota Department of Human Services and the North Dakota Epidemiologist recommendations and feel that this is the safest decision for the seniors we serve. Meals site opening will be reevaluated in 2021. Read all of our COVID-19 updates here.
