The Habersham County Senior Center serves as a community hub for activities designed to help our county's older residents maintain their dignity, support their independence and encourage them to stay active ...physically, mentally and in their communities.
The senior center program is an outgrowth of the 1965 Older Americans Act passed by Congress and signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson. The Act established the Administration on Aging, a national agency to oversee the development of services and opportunities for older people in every community across the nation.
The Administration on Aging provides funds under the Older American's Act to state agencies on aging to carry out this mandate. In turn, most states designate Area Agencies on Aging to further this mandate within planning and service areas across the state.
The Area Agency on Aging works with leaders of communities within its planning and service area to designate one or more community focal points for service and delivery. Services funded through Older Americans Act, as well as services funded through other public and private sources are coordinated through these focal points. In communities across the country, senior centers, town halls, churches and other facilities have been established as focal points to provide information and access services for older persons.
There are several types of programs offered at the Habersham Senior Center including:
