While older adults in Westerville are among the more active users of the City’s 26+ miles of paths, numerous parks, exceptional aquatic services and our impressive community center, they also have their very own programs and services—the Westerville Senior Center.

You’ll be amazed when you read all that’s going on in the bi-monthly schedule and newsletter mailed to members and published in the community newspaper. Get this—Mah Jongg, digital photography, discussion groups, computer application classes—there’s something for absolutely everyone.

We invite you to experience the benefits of our creative programs and helpful services—including improved health, lower stress, new skills, greater independence and lasting friendships and memories. Our staff believes that a smile and hug should be part of everyone’s day, and we’ve got one waiting for you. Hope to see you soon!

Westerville Senior Association

The Westerville Senior Association (WSA) was formed in 2000 as a membership organization to assist the Senior Center in funding these needs. The purpose of this 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is to “…promote programs and provide facilities that will contribute to a life of dignity and independence for members who are 55 or over. Programs shall contribute to the betterment and fulfillment of life for these members including: education, nutrition, health, outreach, recreation, and support services.

Senior Center


Goals:
  • Provide meaningful programs
  • Promote nutrition
  • Travel to near and far destinations
  • Assist in the transportation of members
  • Give back to the community

Membership now exceeds 2000; and some 40% of members are nonresidents of Westerville. WSA’s hard-working members and community representatives volunteer their time and talents to help the Senior Center reach its full potential of providing quality programs and services to the older-adult community at large.

WSA engages in fundraising efforts such as the Ham & Bean dinner, its newly-instituted annual Garage Sale, The Forever Young Theater Group, and the fabulous annual Snowflake Castle. Without this financial help, the Westerville Senior Center would not be able to accomplish its purpose or achieve so much. 

Please join in the efforts to enhance the quality of life for our older adults. All proceeds benefit the Westerville Senior Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and are tax deductible to the extent of the law.
