Senior Center Modified Re-Opening

The Senior Center of West Seattle will re-open with limited programming, by appointment only, on Monday, June 29.

During this phase, the Senior Center will operate with just a few high-demand programs that are held 1:1 or in a small group setting. The first couple of weeks will be our test period as we evaluate how to provide the programs, activities and classes our members want most while keeping our members, volunteers and staff safe. Our goal is to add more programming throughout July and August, as safety guidelines allow.

Safety is Our Top Priority

Masks and six-foot physical distancing will be mandatory while inside the Senior Center. Read more about how we are following safety guidelines here.

To make an appointment for a class or activity, call 206-932-4044. No walk-in participation will be permitted during this period of our re-opening.
