Pasadena Senior Center
The Pasadena Senior Center (PSC) is a vital community asset. As a donor supported nonprofit organization, the PSC does not receive local, state or federal funding for their operations and is not a city-operated facility. Every effort is made to keep membership and class fees as low as possible so that everyone can participate. While those fees help, they do not cover the operating costs of the Center. Private donations, foundation grants, corporate sponsorships, and community philanthropy are essential to support the Center’s operational expenses, as well as social wellness programs. Social wellness ensures: social connectedness; optimal quality of life; and maximized independence.
Every year, more than 10,000 older adults age 50+ from a variety of backgrounds, with differing needs, abilities and interests come to PSC for a sense of community and so much more. PSC provides the opportunity to: continue lifelong learning; discover new opportunities for social interaction; and engage in a multitude of activities to keep their minds sharp, bodies healthy and spirits soaring.
The PSC's dynamic programming also includes a full range of free social service programs for older adults who face chronic health issues, poor nutrition, social isolation, income insecurity, lack of access to transportation, and more. At the Center, they understand that older adults want to remain independent for as long as possible, and they work hard to help them do so with a sense of dignity, happiness, and safety in an environment where they are valued.
