About North Shore Senior Center
As a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization, our highest priority is you. Our work is driven by our love of serving seniors and not by monetary profit.
We Dreamed It
Since our founding in 1956, North Shore Senior Center has partnered with older adults to redefine the process of aging. We imagined a social community for seniors -- one defined by friendships, volunteerism, clubs and new experiences. We didn't know what it would look like, but we knew that creativity, enthusiasm and knowledge would be its foundation.
You Helped Us Build It
Today, thanks to the collective efforts of our members, staff, volunteers and friends, the North Shore Senior Center community we imagined is a reality. Whether you visit us to take a class, enjoy a concert, or exercise in our Fitness Center, you can experience its benefits.
We also imagined that our community could extend beyond the walls of our brick-and-mortar buildings. It was important that older adults who were isolated due to physical, emotional or financial issues could participate as well. It was equally important that North Shore Senior Center could help those who needed assistance with Medicare, income t...axes, caregiving concerns and issues relating to Alzheimer's disease and memory loss.
To ensure that all the pieces we imagined fit together perfectly, we strengthened our community with the passion of volunteers and the commitment of our partners in local businesses and government.
We invite you to visit us, join us, and help us imagine what "aging" will look like in the years ahead. We think it's going to be inspirational!
