Senior Center Interior Gets a Refresh

At the Senior Center of West Seattle, we believe that we should be a vibrant reflection of the community members that make this space their own. As we celebrate a monumental milestone in our history, we continue to be hard at work to ensure our physical spaces and our programming match the vitality and needs of our community.

For months now, we’ve been hard at work giving our building, the “Jewel of the Junction,” a refresh. Now, as you enter our lobby, you’ll be greeted by bright and modern colors. Our reception space features new flooring and an inviting space to gather. Upstairs, almost every inch has been repainted for a fresh, clean look. Walking through the café and into the classrooms, the theme continues. Finally, but perhaps most importantly, our restrooms upstairs have been completely redone to be more accessible and contemporary.

Refreshing the Senior Center would not have been possible without the dedication of S365 Consulting + Design, our board of directors, staff members, volunteers and donors.

If you have not visited the Senior Center in a while, come by and see us. Join a class, have a cup of coffee in our café or come to an event. And, please continue to make this community your own. Our members are the ones who bring the Senior Center to life.

 

 

April is Volunteer Appreciation Month

We want to say a huge thank you to our amazing volunteers. Despite the pandemic, more than 200 people dedicated their time to the Senior Center last year to ensure our essential programs continued.

Our volunteers delivered meals to seniors in their homes, provided connection and companionship through our Westside Friends program and helped keep the Stop ‘N Shop thrift store open and thriving to support our operations.

We recently welcomed back our front desk volunteer receptionists. The Senior Center staff team is so happy to have these friendly faces back in the building. Our volunteer receptionists can help you register for programs, renew your membership or answer questions about our mix of in-person and virtual classes and activities.

We anticipate a busy spring and summer as we add back more in-person programs and expand our technology offerings. Our volunteers will continue to be an important part of everything we do.
