Older Adult Centers

A Place for Friendship and Community

Current Activities and Meals

Our Older Adult Centers are open for in-person activities.

Our Goddard Riverside and Lincoln Square Older Adult Centers help older members of the community live life to the fullest.

Activities such as painting classes, exercise, choir, “Poets and Writers,” games, and computer workshops challenge older adults to keep growing and learning. Social events such as birthday and holiday parties strengthen the sense of community. Our hot lunch provides vital nutritional support at an affordable price.

Membership is free to anyone 60 and older. Our more than 3,000 members come from diverse racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds. They are actively involved in the centers, so that the services and activities reflect their interests. Members also work with staff to reach out to their homebound peers through our Senior Outreach program.

Our goal is to enable older adults to maintain their independence, stability, and social connectedness to their communities. We provide practical support to address health issues and almost any other problem that independent older adults are likely to face.

Our strategic partner on the East Side, the Isaacs Center has two Older Adult Programs. The Older Adult Program at the Isaacs Center is located at 415 E 93rd Street and serves residents of Isaacs/Holmes public housing. The Older Adult Program at the Taft Center is located at 1365 5th Avenue and serves residents of Taft/Johnson public housing.
