Seniors & Center 50+

An important part of staying healthy as you age is staying engaged physically and socially. The City of Salem along with concerned citizens, and the 501(c)3 nonprofit Friends of Center 50+, collaborated to create Center 50+ as a non-membership community center providing programs and services to adults age 50 and older. Other programs throughout the City provide help in specialized areas.
