Current Activities and Meals

Our Older Adult Centers are open for in-person activities. Masks and social distancing are required by the Department for the Aging. Masks may be removed while eating.

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.
