The Center is a nationally-accredited, award-winning nonprofit organization that creates opportunities for healthy aging through social engagement, physical well-being, civic involvement, creativity, and lifelong learning. With opportunities for good health, seniors increase their social and economic participation in our community while reducing healthcare costs. Since opening in 1960 (originally as the Senior Center), we have never stopped growing and evolving meet the changing needs of older adults, becoming along the way a national model for senior health and independence.
Our model of healthy aging is based on seven dimensions of wellness that overlap and interact in myriad ways. This framework shows more concisely what we do and why.
