Envisioning Our Senior Centers

Envisioning Our Senior Centers

The Department on Aging is committed to providing senior center programming that promotes the dignity, independence and engagement of older adults in our community. After considering the structural, maintenance and ongoing resource needs of our five Milwaukee County senior centers, the Aging Advisory Council is hosting a series of community conversations to hear your vision for the future of our senior centers. Please join us for one of these sessions and help spread the word!

Ways to Join Us

Senior Center Community Conversations

Unavailable to attend a community conversation? Contribute your ideas through our online survey by Sept. 15.

The Advisory Council will review the ideas generated by this visioning process and provide a report with recommendations to the Commission on Aging in the fall of 2019. The Commission will then work with the Department to plan for the future development of our senior centers.
