Our vision at the Pasadena Senior Center is to help older adults engage, enrich and empower their lives.
We are a nonprofit. We do not receive money from the City or the Federal Government. The City provides the building but we raise the money for all programs, services and maintenance.
While membership and class fees contribute toward, they do not cover, the operating cost of the Center. We work hard to keep fees as low as possible so that everyone can participate. We need to raise the money to support the Center’s operational expenses as well as social wellness programs.
Social wellness is achieved at PSC through social support activities and the provision of basic needs services that ensure
- Social connectedness
- Optimal quality of life
- 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. In this place, they
- Continue lifelong learning
- Discover new opportunities for social interaction
- Engage in a multitude of activities to keep their minds sharp, bodies healthy and spirits soaring.
Our 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. We understand that older adults want to remain independent for as long as possible, and we work hard to help them do so with a sense of dignity, happiness, and safety in an environment where they are valued.
