Friends of Poway Seniors

About

  The Poway Valley Senior Citizens Corporation was formed in 1974 and it is still here today. It has been quite a journey. 

We are no longer the Poway Senior Center and our mission and vision have changed. However, our passion to positively impact lives has not wavered.

Please join us on our New journey as the Friends of Poway Seniors. We look forward to meeting you and serving our community in new and exciting ways.

Mission

To support our seniors and marginalized communities by providing volunteer opportunities, access to material provisions and monetary support for municipal-run senior programming and other community outreach programs

Vision

For our seniors, and community-at-large to engage in, benefit from and enjoy life to its fullest

Thank you

to our Bingo Volunteers, participants

and the Sitek Family Trust
Your contributions to the Bingo program support this important lunch program. 

Community lunches support Poway seniors by providing:

  • social opportunities to meet with others
     

  • budget-conscious seniors a lower-cost alternative to restaurant dining
     

  • Provides at least one hot meal a day for seniors who may not otherwise cook or buy complete meals for themselves


 

Friends of Poway Seniors was awarded a cooperative grant by the IRS so that our community seniors could participate in the Tax Counseling for the Elderly program. 



Thank you to the City of Poway for providing the tax preparation space at the Mickey Cafagna Community Center.
