Our Wellness Centers offer a daily calendar of classes and activities, in addition to a noon meal.

Transportation may also be provided for seniors who do not have their own means of transportation. In FY16, 154 clients visited our wellness centers, where they enjoyed 13,896 congregate meals and 10,560 physical fitness sessions.
