How You Can Make an Impact:
Second Home is committed to giving back to the communities where our clients and their loved ones live and work. After your loved one completes a 30 day stay in their new home, you’ll be able to choose to donate $100 to one of the local non-profits below that help seniors.

The senior village concept was started in 1999 in the Beacon Hill area in Boston. Since then, over 140 villages have been established, and over 125 more are in development across the nation. South Bay Village, established by Ghislaine Davis and several other volunteers in 2014, started operations in May 2015, now serves Torrance and nearby surrounding areas. The Village provides services to its members to help them to remain in their own homes, while enjoying all that their familiar community has to offer.
The village is composed of several elements, all orchestrated to help senior members to continue to live full lives, while remaining in their own homes.
Individual Members pay an annual membership fee of $500. For a Household Membership (2 seniors living in same household), the cost is $750/yr. Please call us for more information.
Any person who is at least 18 years of age may volunteer in most capacities. Younger volunteers may be accommodated on a case-by-case basis depending on parental approval. Many village volunteers are typically seniors themselves.
The success of any Village depends very much on the Volunteers, and our processes respect that. We will only ask you to do those things that you desire to do. We ask that when you have volunteered to do something, you are reliable and on-time. We also ask that, at all times, you are respectful toward members. Volunteers and members typically enjoy the whole experience, just like friends normally do!
ASPIRE-211 grew out of a desire to Assist Seniors by Providing Information, Referrals and Education.
With *10,000 people turning 65 every day, it is more important now than ever before to protect our vulnerable population of seniors and dependent adults. It is our mission to create a collaborative platform for organizations to raise awareness about financial scams and educate seniors and dependent adults on ways to better protect themselves, as seen in our PSA campaigns.
To reduce victimization of seniors and those most vulnerable through community outreach, education, and referrals, ASPIRE-211 collaborates with a variety of community organizations such as:
- Small Businesses
- Government agencies

The Salvation Army Mission Statement
The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
It is our mission to assist seniors with Alzheimer’s, dementia, stroke, Parkinson’s, or other conditions that cause them to have special needs to stay in their home communities with their families or in other community settings by providing a safe, stimulating social environment outside the home for them to enjoy, while at the same time providing respite for their caregivers.
South Bay Adult Care Center is located at the Anderson Park Senior Center. In keeping with the overall operation of the Senior Center we like to think of South Bay Adult Care Center as a clubhouse. We endeavor for it to be welcoming and enjoyable for our members. While as an adult day program we provide for the special needs of our members, the purpose for them should be recreation.
South Bay Adult Care Center is a social model adult day program. We accept seniors who are ambulatory or use assistive devices to walk. We can also accept seniors who are in wheelchairs, as long as they can assist with transfers in the restroom. We accept seniors who may need moderate assistance with issues of incontinence. We cannot accept clients who need nursing care, who are harmful to self or others, or who have significant issues with wandering (ie. cannot be redirected.)
