Modernizing Senior Centers Resource Center (Due 7/26/21)

According to Older Americans Act State Performance Reports, there are over 11,000 senior centers in the United States.

Given the changing aging demographics, senior centers will need to adapt to the "new" older adult and create a new and modern experience. This issue has only been heightened by the COVID pandemic which caused many senior centers to close and rapidly create alternative programming to meet the needs of the older adults in their communities.
