St Anne’s Senior Center Matt Hoppe
Welcome to St Anne's Senior Center!
St. Anne’s Senior Community Center provides programs and services for older adults living in Port Richmond, Fishtown and surrounding neighborhoods. The center welcomes anyone 50 years and older and there is no charge to become a member. St. Anne’s promotes positive aging by encouraging older adults to stay active in body, mind and spirit. Members can start the day by coming to the center for a cup of coffee and spend the day pursuing activities that interest you: experience Tai Chi, discover the arts, explore volunteer opportunities, enjoy the lunchtime meal and just socialize with friends. The center’s social service coordinator is also available to be a resource for members who may need information about benefits and entitlements, assistance arranging transportation and access to other services.
This summer on Friday afternoons, some of St. Anne’s artists will be mentoring 24 children ages 8-12...
