Recognized by the Older Americans Act (OAA) as a community focal point, senior centers have become one of the most widely used services among America’s older adults. Today, 11,400 senior centers serve more than 1 million older adults every day.
We are a bridge between our members and our community-at-large. Recognizing the increasing complexity of our world, we reach out to assist our members, as well as other seniors, in finding solutions to the many community issues and challenges affecting our elder population.
We offer a wide variety of programs and services, including:
