MSV Supports Seniors

Marillac St. Vincent is committed to empowering seniors in Chicago through programs and services that improve their quality of life. We accomplish this by offering intensive supports to at-risk seniors, community-based case management and friendly visiting to mobility-limited seniors, and monthly enrichment meetings for able seniors.


Intensive Case Advocacy & Support (ICAS) Program

Sponsored by a generous grant from the City of Chicago and HUD, Marillac St. Vincent provides comprehensive supportive services to at-risk, self-neglectful seniors throughout Chicago in order to ensure stability and safety.


Community Based Case Management

We offer individualized assessment, planning, care coordination, advocacy and more for vulnerable seniors who need support with obtaining food and meals, transportation assistance, financial management, moving assistance, and more.


Companion Services

We offer companion services to alleviate the isolation and loneliness for seniors who lack other social supports. These services are provided by our Senior Services case managers, other seniors who have been trained to provide friendly visiting, and adult visiting companions. Our staff and volunteers make a positive difference through regular friendly visits, and may include assistance with daily tasks such as sharing meals, shopping or reading mail. Our volunteer companions act as a second set of eyes and ears for our most isolated seniors.


Take Charge

We provide a safe and nurturing environment for mobile, active seniors on the West Side to meet each month. Take Charge meetings offer socialization, sharing a meal, and educational experiences through speakers. The Take Charge summer day trips offer enriching opportunities.
