The Center is a community focal point for residents of Newport County and surrounding communities where older persons can come together for services and/or activities which enhance their dignity, reflect their experience and skills, support their independence, encourage their involvement in and with the Center and the community, and respond to their diverse needs and interests.
The Center is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 to 4:00. Some functions are held during evening hours.
We serve as a community resource for people who are 55 and over. Founded in 1981 as a non-profit organization, raising over 60% of our funds.
As an important part of the network for serving older people, we keep our membership appraised of current programs designed to assist older adults through our monthly newsletter, "The Windmill" and through seminars, informational and educational programs on health and legal issues, and printed material.
We also offer a variety of classes and social activities on a weekly basis.
