Programming to strengthen lives and our community!


The Center offers a number of community-based programs. Our programs include:

Caring Closet

Offers gently used clothing, shoes, books, and accessories. The caring closet is open to the community and for donation drop off Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:00am – 2:00pm.

Game Night

Weekly games nights are held at the Center every Tuesday from 6:30pm – 8:00pm.  All students are required to sign in and actively participate in weekly games. In addition to group games, the students participate in a 20-minute life skills lesson and are served a family styled meal. If interested in donating or volunteering please contact Quetrina Sims-Shelton.

ElderShare/Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP)

Through the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), income-eligible seniors can receive much-needed supplemental food packages (boxes) on a monthly basis.

ElderShare is a monthly supplemental food program of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Food for ElderShare is provided by the USDA Department of Food and Nutrition Service. ElderShare food packages do not provide a complete diet, but rather are good sources of the nutrients typically lacking in the diets of lower-incomeseniors.
