MID-CITY CONCERNS SENIOR CENTER
The Mid-City Senior Center continues providing breakfasts and hot lunch meals 5 days a week. The suggested donation is $5.00 per hot lunch. Meals are served at 11:30 A.M.
Since 1967 Mid-City Senior Center has provided a nutritional and social lifeline for seniors through our downtown meal site in Spokane and Meals on Wheels delivery to elderly, disabled homebound seniors. The center is open five days a week and provides a warm, inviting, and safe atmosphere for men and women who are predominantly living alone, isolated in apartment rooms, and existing on incomes far below the federal Poverty level. 75% of those using the center are 75 years or older.
These senior citizens are at risk nutritionally due to inadequate resources to purchase, store, and prepare food. On a daily basis, they cope with inadequate housing, poverty, loneliness, health problems, and a neighborhood beset by drug trafficking and related crime.
Mid-City Senior Center is the "Center" of these seniors’ lives. When their apartments are poorly heated and they haven't enough money for food, they come in to get warm and to socialize with their peers in a safe wholesome environment. They receive assistance from a caring staff, trained to help them with problem solving and to make appropriate referrals for other needed services. We continue our advocacy program to further promote this cause for independence. Most important, they are treated with respect and kindness.
