The purpose of the Swartz Creek Area Senior Center shall be to identify and meet the needs of senior citizens. This is achieved through programs designed to provide services in the areas of information and referral, education, health screening, nutrition and arts, recreation, leadership development, personal growth, self-worth, and community involvement.
The Swartz Creek Area Senior Center has adopted a policy of non-discrimination in all programs, services and employment. No one shall be excluded on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, religion, age, martial status, veteran and military status or disability unless required by the eligibility guidelines for services. Inclusiveness is a core value that drives the organization's mission of providing services to benefit persons who are over the age of fifty and reside in Genesee County.
Programs and/or services are fully or partially funded by Genesee County Senior Services millage Funds. Your tax dollars at work.
