Poway Senior Center is a 501 (c) 3 charitable tax-exempt organization. Tax Identification Number: 51-0813384

We have strived to help our senior population live robustly and independently by promoting better health, and reduced isolation while meeting the various needs faced by seniors.

Up until the recent pandemic mandated closure, we have served our seniors daily with programs and activities such as exercise classes, discussion groups, game playing, legal and tax support services, and minor medical screening.

In addition, we have been privileged to host a hot and nutritious lunch in our Bistro every Monday through Friday (excluding holidays).

Everything we have done through donations, grants, memberships, business partnerships and by the efforts of our bingo, receptionist, and lunch volunteers.
