It is the mission at the Twin Falls Senior Center (since 1978) to provide a range of civic, cultural, educational, medical transportation, training, recreational and nutritional opportunities for the older individuals in our community.
In order to provide these services, we are always needing additional funds. In order to comply with the Older American's Act we can only ask for suggested donations from our membership. We relying largely on donationsf from our members, community support from local businesses, grants, and annual fundraisers. This is why we are participating in the Idaho Gives Day on May 7, 2015.
The Twin Falls Senior Center provides daily nutritional meals for our community seniors both in our facility and to the home-bound. An average of 4,200 meals goes to our community monthly. Many times this may be the only hot meal or contact the home bound person has for a day. We provide meals, for a small donation, Monday through Friday at noon at the Center and Monday through Sunday for our home-bound members. Last year the Center served 54,598 meals to seniors (38,020 meals to home-bound and 16,578 meals at the center).
The Twin Falls Senior Center also provides a well-rounded atmosphere for all to enjoy. The Center offers numerous activities for everyone to enjoy. (Please check out our monthly schedule on our website or at the Center.) Current activities include the following:
