Mizell Senior Center has been serving the greater Palm Springs area for over 40 years, and is the community focal point on healthy and active aging. This is a place where Active Seniors come together for service and activity which enhances dignity, supports independence, and encourages involvement in and with the community.
Programs support individuals in all phases of the aging process and promote healthy aging, wellness, and community participation. The mission of the Mizell Senior Center is to enhance the lives and welfare of adults who live in or visit our community. Programs and services at Mizell Senior Center are designed to meet the needs of low income seniors and to provide opportunities to combat loneliness, isolation, and maintain active productive lives. Loneliness, isolation, and depression know no economic boundaries. We have over 50,000 visits each year from individuals taking part in our activities and programs.
We need your help to continue providing vital services to our local community and to the Coachella Valley. Your Contribution is essential in making sure providing Meals on Wheels to 500 frail, homebound seniors from Palm Springs to Salton Sea. We will be able to continue and expand our unique Senior Fall Prevention Program, and promoting healthy and active aging with dignity.
