Fort Bend Seniors (FBS) is one of Fort Bend County’s oldest non-profit organizations and was formed in 1974 by community leaders. During our first year of service, FBS provided 20,000 hot meals.
By 1976, the program became a non-profit organization 501(c)(3), and in 1981, Fort Bend Seniors joined the United Way of Texas Gulf Coast. FBS is accredited through the Meals on Wheels Association of America as a Certified Nutritional Program.
Fort Bend Seniors now provides Meals on Wheels services to about 2,200 seniors daily. Fort Bend Seniors is the only organization that provides Meals on Wheels to all persons 60 years of age and over regardless of income in Fort Bend or Waller Counties. 91% of FBS’ clients live near or below the poverty level living.
Today, FBS provides comprehensive services and programs including Meals on Wheels, congregate meals, transportation, case management, health screenings, information and referral services, recreation and more. Each of these programs and services enables area seniors to remain in their homes and continue to be an integral part of the community for as long as possible.
