The Davis Senior Center, 646 A St., hosts more than 80 ongoing programs and services, not including the many presentations and special events held throughout the year.

More than 200 volunteers help us serve, on average, 300 persons a day. Some volunteers assist us weekly, while others help with a specific event or behind the scenes with staff. Our Center also works regularly with community partners to bring a broad spectrum of resources to adults in this special community.

This month alone, we will coordinate with more than 25 entities, from the Area 4 Agency on Aging CarFit program May 6, to Project Linus, which meets every 2nd Wed. at the Senior Center.
We also offer weekly or monthly appointments for caregiving, health Insurance counseling, legal aid, technology, and Veterans Services as well as hosting a variety of support and discussion groups, games, art, and dance/ fitness classes led by experienced and well respected instructors.

We encourage participation by all ages in our programs and work regularly with local high schools and UC Davis students who intern and volunteer with us regularly. Davis Senior High Technological Outreach Club will be at our center May 22 to offer 1X1 help with tech devices and the education team from VN CARES (Vietnamese Cancer Awareness Research and Education Society) at UC Davis will discuss Alzheimer’s Disease and various cognitive disorders Wed. May 7, at 10:30 a.m.

UC students are also regular participants (dancers and musicians) at our Dance and Jam Sessions on the first and third Friday of each month at 2:15 p.m. For more details, and to learn about upcoming events, we encourage subscription to our monthly newsletter, The Scene, available in hard copy for a donation or free through an e-subscription.
