The Clinton Senior Center began as a once-a-week meeting in the basement of Sacred Heart Church in 1969; soon a twice-weekly lunch was added, and then in 1973 the Bureau of Purchased Social Services for Adults (BPSSA) provided funding for a full Senior Center. In 1977 the Senior Center moved into the Harborview Terrace -- a two-building apartment complex that had just been completed by the City’s Housing Authority -- and it officially became Project FIND’s Clinton Senior Center.
The Center has an enclosed garden in the back, a library, and a large dining room. Lunch is served every day, and on Wednesdays a light dinner is available. Many classes and activities are offered at Clinton including trips, holiday parties, and celebrations from around the world.
Last year almost 600 people visited Clinton to participate in a class, activity or meal, and more than 25,000 lunches were served.
