In-Person Programs


The Senior Center of West Seattle is now open with limited programming, by appointment only.

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.
