(AUBURN, CA) – Seniors First has been awarded a prestigious grant by the United Auburn Indian Community of the Auburn Rancheria for $5,000 to support home modification and safety repairs for older adults in the county. Seniors First, a 501(c)(3) organization providing vital services to older adults in Placer County, was carefully selected as a recipient of the grant to help fund the organization's handyman program.
