At the The Joslyn Center, we love life!

Our vision is simple and powerful . . . to enrich the lives of older adults every day. The Joslyn Center does so much for so many. It is a one-stop shop for those 50 and above and their families. A friendly social gathering, a game with friends, a Thursday night dinner club, healthy aging programs, fitness center and counseling services through the Joslyn Wellness Center, entertainment and enrichment in the Arthur Newman Theatre, interesting & educational classes, and a nutritious hand-delivered meal are just a few examples of The Joslyn Center's mission in action.

For over 40 years, The Joslyn Center has been opening the door to resources, providing lifelong learning that enriches the mind, body and spirit, fostering physical well-being and healthy attitudes, and helping create self-sufficiency to support independent, vibrant living!

We care!  The Joslyn Center is a vibrant atmosphere that provides over 60 activities each week ranging from social clubs, skill based classes, creative & performance art workshops, fitness classes, and wellness opportunities to free social services such as free tax and legal consultations, and blood pressure testing.

Members of The Joslyn Center range in age from 50 to over 100 Years!  There are approximately 200-500 visitors to the Center each day and over 2,000 members!

"The Joslyn Center has been a lifesaver.  After my husband died, I reluctantly ventured out for new friends and experiences.  I was richly rewarded at Joslyn." - 100-year-old Joslyn Member, Alison Hansen

The Joslyn Center is a safety net for seniors to look to in times of need. The Center provides meals nourishing seniors with food and a sense of belonging, countless resources, and health & wellness services to thousands of seniors each year. Over 16,000 meals were hand-delivered by caring volunteers through our Meals on Wheels program and over 2,500 seniors received groceries and pet food through our Penny's Pantry program this past year alone, along with a newly added free Farmer's Market. No senior deserves to go hungry!

"I have been blessed to have Meals on Wheels in my life.  As I age I find that many of the things I was able to do, I no longer do.  Your program has helped me stay in my home with dignity." - Joslyn Center Meals on Wheels recipient

Whether providing a helping hand, being a steadfast advocate or offering a sense of care and family, The Joslyn Center supports seniors in their striving to remain vital and connected community members despite the hardships they may face.

Donating gives you an opportunity to change people's lives, including your own. Together we can continue providing an enjoyable, safe environment where seniors can relax and meet new friends, join activities to keep physically active, stretch their minds by engaging in creative learning, discover new resources, and take advantage of the critical services we provide.

Regardless of how you contribute today, we are grateful for your support. We invite you to choose a gift that is meaningful for you and your family. Your gift to The Joslyn Center truly helps enrich lives. Thank you!
