Woodstock Senior Center is located on the second floor of the Woodstock Hotel, one of Project FIND’s three residential buildings. It is accessible by elevator. The Center first opened in 1977, two years after Project FIND took over the management of the Woodstock Hotel.
The Woodstock is a busy center which features a computer room, a large dining room, Saturday art classes, and monthly parties. Breakfast and lunch are served Tuesday through Sunday, cooked in Woodstock’s large kitchen. The Center also has a Homeless In-Reach Program which assists homeless seniors. Shower facilities are available to the homeless on weekday mornings.
Last year more than 1,300 people visited Woodstock to participate in an activity, class or meal, and more than 84,000 meals were served.
