Mission & History

SET for LIFE is a nonprofit, community based organization, serving the communities of the San Gabriel Valley since 2004. Our mission is to provide older adults 50+ with health education, practical skills as it related to enhancing their quality of life and health outcomes. In 2005, we began offering educational health seminars, medical screenings and interactive workshops to senior residents through our annual "Living Healthy for Life 50+" Expo.

By partnering with local organizations, including: City of Hope, an NCI designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, AARP, and HealthCare Partners, to name a few, we are able to offer the above mentioned services free of charge to all participants. In 2012, our annual health expo reached over 600 medically under served seniors and their families. In 2011, we began our fitness classes, which have attracted over 350 older adults and children. The classes are designed to engage our seniors in a healthy lifestyle change to improve health and prevent chronic illness.

In 2012, SET for LIFE received an award from the city of Monrovia for outstanding charitable service to the community. In 2010, we were honored by the city of Duarte for our community health services. Our annual Expo primarily helps to engage and educate seniors and their families in making healthy lifestyle changes and choices.

Our Volunteers in Action

We need your professional skills and talents to help SET for LIFE continue to provide services to the community. If you are looking for a way to truly give back locally, why not offer up the skills you already posses? The SET for LIFE Expo 50+ also offers the perfect opportunity for high school students to earn necessary community service and internship hours. Please contact us for more information.
