Activities – helping seniors avoid isolation, remain socially connected and physically healthy through regional exercise groups, hobby and social groups, etc. is central to our mission.
Support Services – it is our goal to support aging adults by providing support services such as our nutrition program, home safety program, free tax preparation, peer visitor program and more.
In 1983, a committee was formed to raise funds for a senior center in Amador County. A kickoff fundraiser was held on October 8, 1983 with a goal of raising $250,000. Incredibly, the goal was met and exceeded within just six months. The founding committee formed what is currently Amador County Senior Services Inc. which is the nonprofit organization that owns and operates the Amador Senior Center.
A groundbreaking ceremony took place on September 7, 1984 with a dedication and ribbon cutting on March 23, 1985.
In the over 30 years of serving the seniors of Amador County, the Amador Senior Center has continued a rich tradition of advocacy, activities, education and support services. Our mission originates from the vision of our founders many years ago, to support and serve the senior population in our community.
We depend on generous financial support from people like you to make all of our services possible. Your donation will be used to help seniors live healthy, connected lives and every donation is completely tax deductible.
