Clinton Senior Center opened in 1969 as a once per week meeting among a small group of seniors in the basement of Sacred Heart Church. In 1973, the Bureau of Purchased Social Services for Adults (BPSSA) provided the seniors with funding to support the development of a senior center within the location. In 1977, the senior center relocated to a larger space and its existing home within Harborview Terrace, a two-building New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) apartment complex.
In 2019, the senior center concluded a $2 million multiyear capital improvement project supported by Borough President Gale Brewer, Councilperson Helen Rosenthal, and NYCHA, which beautifully renovated the site’s entry way, ceilings, floors, lighting, restrooms, kitchen, and program spaces.
Clinton Senior Center is ground level, handicap accessible, and features a large programming space, computer room, and commercial grade kitchen. Prior to COVID, the location provided daily health and cultural programs in addition to serving nutritious, freshly prepared breakfast and lunch meals to seniors five days per week.
We very much appreciate everyone’s patience and cooperation as we follow the required guidelines to safely reopen our Center in a way that prioritizes each other’s health and safety! Clinton Senior Center is excited to announce its continued progress towards fully reopening our site.
On Tuesday, July 6th, we began providing a limited number of Grab-and-Go lunches on a first come, first served basis from our Senior Center. These meals can be eaten within the site or taken to go.
We also began offering limited in-person programs, including access to the computer lab.
In addition to these on-site classes, Project FIND continues to offer an academy of over 50 weekly online classes taught by certified instructors and other qualified professionals residing throughout NYC!
