The Senior Citizens Council Today

“Senior Citizens” are redefining the term. Retirement is an option, aging is a state of mind, and becoming old is something that happens when you stop going, growing, learning, and following your dreams! The Senior Citizens Council, founded on March 6, 1968, is a chartered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization devoted to today’s seniors who are more active and involved than ever before, whatever their age! In fact, today's seniors are shaping the future of The Senior Citizens Council and the community by participating in the various programs and services offered by the SCC.

Through a nationwide network of volunteer programs called AmeriCorps Seniors, we offer volunteer opportunities to income and age-eligible senior adults who may earn a stipend while tutoring children or assisting older, frail or disabled adults. AmeriCorps.gov

Through the Advocacy Programs Department senior adults are taking control of their lives by making informed decisions about healthcare, insurance, and finances while turning the table on scam artists who foolishly believe senior adults are easy prey.
