United Neighborhood Centers of Northeastern Pennsylvania operates four active adult community centers that are run in conjunction with the Lackawanna County Area Agency on Aging. At each center, members are offered a broad range of social, recreational, educational and health programs in pleasant, welcoming environments.
Lackawanna County residents, sixty years of age or older, and their spouse (any age) are eligible to participate in senior center meals, programs, and activities. All centers serve a meal at noon for a modest suggested donation, and the Lackawanna County Coordinated Transportation System provides transportation to all of our centers. Various activities offered at the centers include chair exercise, Nintendo Wii bowling, computer classes, tai chi, ballroom dancing, yoga, book clubs, special events, and bus trips to local resorts and casinos.
Each senior center is staffed by a manager, senior workers paid through government sponsored worker programs, and non – paid volunteers. Our centers are as varied as the neighborhoods in which they are situated, and as welcoming as the wonderful members and volunteers found there.
