Community for Seniors (55 and older)

Welcome to the Senior's Page 

Here is what's going on for Seniors in East Palo Alto...

        Senior Prom (Saturday, September 21st)

From dinner to dancing, and festive attire to fanciful decorations, prom for senior citizens bears a close resemblance to the prom held at local high schools. Please come out and have fun. We welcome all our seniors-and a friend, to dance the night away. We will have a keynote presentation by our very own Rev. Deborah Lewis-Virges. Also, the Senior Advisory Committee will be presenting awards to seniors within our community. 

Entertainment will consist of local East Palo Alto singers. It's going to be a night to remember. Please call 650.853.3100 to reserve your seat at the prom.

Senior Lunch Program

The Senior Nutrition Program provides a nutritious lunch to adults 60 years of age or older. The program seeks to reduce the isolation of older adults by providing these meals in a social setting. We encourage all mobile, active, older adults to join us for the nutritious lunch. The meals are great, and the social environment is even better! 

Lunch is served daily from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Senior Center located at:

560 Bell Street, East Palo Alto, CA 94303

For more information contact Titus Uelese at (650) 272-9228 or by email.
