Since 1975, we have led the effort to provide a place for older adults to have active friendships in Wayne.

Our Mission

The mission of the Wayne Senior Center is to provide community, friendship and resources which enrich the lives of older adults.

The Wayne Senior Center is the place to be - where active, independent people age 50 and older come to nurture their interests and needs, both intellectual and physical. This is the place where seniors become empowered to grow, develop and get involved. Consider the Center as your “home away from home.”
— Susan Shapiro, Executive Director
