OPAG staff and board members also help with deliveries in Anchorage and the Mat-Su Valley.

Senior Housing special section

Senior Voice is working on plans for a special section on senior housing to go into our February 2014 issue. This will be an excellent opportunity for businesses, agencies and organizations involved with housing – be it managing rental properties, providing home renovations or refinancing, or some other service – to get the word out to our readers about what you do.
