The Senior Services program provides a comprehensive group of programs for adults 55 and older to help build a brighter future for them and their community, enabling them to live more independently with dignity.
The goal of the Santa Fe Crossing and Station 618 senior centers is to be a community focal point where older adults come together for services and activities that reflect their experience and skills, respond to their diverse needs and interests, enhance their dignity, support their independence, and encourage their involvement in and with the centers and the community.
To learn about this month's activities, read April's Monthly Express newsletter.
