Clinton Older Adult 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 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 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.
Our center has returned to providing freshly prepared meals to members on a first come, first served basis. These hot, nutritious meals can be eaten onsite or taken to go.
To support older New Yorkers in living active, engaging, and independent lives within their communities, we continue to offer an array of online and in-person classes taught by certified instructors and other qualified professionals residing throughout NYC.
NOTE: In an effort to be as safe as possible, we require masks be worn in all common areas of our spaces when individuals are not eating or drinking.
