Our Mission

The mission of the New Castle Senior Center is to serve older adults with programs to enhance their health, happiness and independence within the community.

New Castle Senior Center welcomes everyone over 50 years of age regardless of race, religion, sex, ethnic origin or handicap.

All members attending the center must be able to take care of their personal care needs and make appropriate independent decisions as they participate in the activities of the day.

Our History

The New Castle Senior Center has been serving seniors in the greater New Castle area since 1970. In 2001, the Senior Center incorporated and became a private nonprofit. A vigorous Capital Campaign ensued to raise funds to offer a permanent meeting place for the active older adults living in the city of New Castle and New Castle County. On March 23, 2005, the center opened its doors to the public in the historic Booker T. Washington School.

In May 2007, a 6,000 square foot addition to the Booker T. building was completed.  The addition included: a large dining room with dance floor; an activity room for cards and exercise classes; exam rooms and physician offices for a health center; a full catering kitchen; and administrative offices.  The Booker T. building now houses a library, crafts area, billiard tables, shuffleboard table and computers.
