Every Community Deserves a Modern
Senior Center

In partnership with the San Diego Seniors Community Foundation, we funded the first-ever Master Plan for Senior Centers. We believe every senior deserves a place to turn to and trust.

Senior Centers have the potential to enrich the aging experience and serve as the hub for older adults to support the challenges that come with aging. A dynamic community-based senior center can become the trusted source for all things related to aging, allowing every older adult within their community to thrive.
