Senior Centers

The Issue

Aging is a community issue that impacts economic development, workforce, social services, health care, families and more. The number of seniors in Erie County age 75 or older has increased by 35% in the last 20 years. Seniors struggle with isolation, hunger, health issues, depression or financial exploitation.

Our Impact


GECAC Senior Centers help meet the need for seniors to socially engage others and gain access to needed services and programs. Our centers enable 14,000 seniors to continue living at home, averting far more costly healthcare alternatives such as hospitals and nursing homes.

Overview

Best place in Erie County for seniors over 60!

GECAC's senior centers are dedicated to encouraging personal growth, fostering active participation in the community, and helping residents age 60 and up achieve and maintain an independent, healthy lifestyle. 

Our seven senior centers are located throughout Erie County. They offer a wide variety of leisure and educational programs, support groups, special events and trips. In addition, the centers' staff serve as a resource for GECAC's Area Agency on Aging. 

Volunteers - especially instructors - are welcome at our senior centers. For more information on how to share your skills, please contact the senior center's director.
