Support Programs for Seniors

May is Older Americans Month! More than ever before, older Americans are working longer, trying new things, and engaging in their communities. They’re taking charge, striving for wellness, focusing on independence, and advocating for themselves and others. What it means to age has changed!

Featured Community Partner

The Diversity Center of Santa Cruz County is powered by the passion and talents of volunteers. Each year they serve 10,000 people through their programs and events - working to build an equitable community for everyone. With Santa Cruz Pride right around the corner (June 4th) we thought you'd like to learn more about this valuable community resource and how you can get involved.
