Older Adults

WSCS offers a wide variety of programming for older adults, all offered under the umbrella of “West Side Seniors.”

We take our programs on the road! Knowing that transportation is a barrier for many seniors, we conduct programs both at our Vermont Street building and at sites throughout the West Side to ensure we are inclusive and accessible to all older adults.

Our 2017-18 program sites include the following:

  • WSCS
  • Baptist Manor
  • Timon Towers
  • The Dream Center
  • Linwood Manor Apartments
  • Trinity Towers
