The Clinton Senior Center began in 1969 as a once-a-week meeting in the basement of Sacred Heart Church. Soon after, 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 a computer lab, a library, and a large dining room. Lunch is served Monday to Friday. 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.
