The History of Monrovia Providers Group
In 1997, representatives from Santa Anita Family Services, the Monrovia Police Department and Leven Oaks Assisted Living retirement home, invited a group of “Providers” of senior services in the city of Monrovia to meet for lunch. The agenda was simple: understand the services that were available to the seniors of Monrovia. Their intention was to meet only one time. Participants from the first meeting also included Monrovia Fire Department, the local postmaster, City of Monrovia Code Enforcement, GENISIS, Adult Protective Services, PET Team, Monrovia Community Services and others.
The original group found that there was so much to discuss to help the seniors of Monrovia, that one meeting was not enough. Each month since that first meeting, the group has continued to meet and share resources. “Monrovia Providers Group, Inc.” was incorporated in 2002 and established as a non-profit organization. Today, Monrovia Providers Group continues to fulfill its mission working with community agencies to identify and address issues relating to seniors as well as holding events and fundraisers in the city of Monrovia and beyond.
