Programs

We offer seniors delicious and healthy meal options, a variety of stimulating daily activities, safe, convenient, comfortable transportation, exciting field trips, engaging special events and a team of compassionate professionals that are committed to excellence.

Nutritious Lunch Meal Program

Join us for lunch Monday through Friday as we serve nutritious, delicious, hot meals at our three community centers. Certified dieticians plan every meal to ensure that seniors are getting a scrumptious, yet, well balanced meal. The atmosphere is casual and seniors experience the pleasure of dining together and socializing with others.

Seniors must meet an annual eligibility requirement to participate in the program and must be 60 years of age or older. We strongly suggest that you call our offices at 409-770-6251 a day ahead to request a meal for the following day. In-kind and monetary donations toward this program are greatly appreciated.

Funding for this program is provided by the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) and the Texas Health & Human Services Commission.

Activities

Our programs are carefully and creatively planned to meet the physical range of needs and diverse social interests of a growing and active senior population. Activities include Yoga, Sit & Be Fit, Ceramic Workshops, Jewelry Classes, Arts & Crafts, Bunco Club, Bridge, Dominoes, Bingo and so many others offered amongst our three community centers. For additional information please call our offices at 409-770-6251 to speak with a senior services staff member and to schedule a ride to one of our community centers to join in the fun.

Transportation Services

We offer safe, reliable, comfortable transportation services to seniors living in Bacliff, San Leon, Dickinson, Hitchcock, Santa Fe, La Marque and Texas City, that would like to participate in activities at our community centers, but no longer drive. In fact, seniors that want to join us for lunch, travel with us on field trips or need to run errands, such as, banking, grocery shopping or post office visits will be picked up at their front door in the morning and returned home safely that afternoon. We’ll do the driving for you. It’s that simple and transportation services are at no cost to seniors. For more information please call our offices at 409-770-6251 to speak with a senior services staff member and to schedule a ride to one of our community centers.
