I have been affiliated with the West Chester Area Senior Center for the past year. I can't express strongly enough how impressed I am with this organization. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to interact with the entire staff and many of the members. All at this Center live the mission of the organization to "Enrich the lives of our senior neighbors through friendship, activities, nourishment and education". I have seen this first hand time and time again. This organization not only provides tremendous services to our valued senior community, but also exemplifies the way a non-profit organization should be run. Over 3,400 seniors benefit from these services and more than 28,000 meals were served last year (many at little or no charge to the seniors). Over 14,000 program sessions are provided annually with the help of 425+ volunteers. If you are a senior looking for a place to make friends, exercise, play cards, learn something new, or just spend some time with others in a beautiful facility, please stop in and say hello.
