Details
The Fox Point Senior Center was established in September of 1972 as a non-profit servicing clients over the age of 55 and the disabled. Since then, our membership has grown as the local community has grown. Our programs range from bingo to walking, Pilates to Water Aerobics, Watercolors to Qi Gong to chair/mat yoga and more. We provide health screening and assistance in independent living through helping connect seniors with services, helping with paperwork and registrations as needed, and by identifying resources too. We regularly have legal aid workshops, income assistance workshops and other sessions to help seniors get the best out of life. We also have monthly cooking demonstrations, or sometimes a BBQ. Membership at the center is free. Our lunches are provided by Meals on Wheels for a suggested $3 donation, but no one is turned away. We request that you make a reservation for your meal a day in advance so we can plan on having enough meals on site for everyone. We work with Meals on Wheels, URI School of Pharmacy, URI School of Nursing, Department of Elderly Affairs, The City of Providence, SNAP, the Fox Point Girl's and Boy's Club, United Way 211, The Point and many other organizations. Our mission is to help by promoting independence, providing social connections and resource education and management, as well as serving seniors in the local community center with the respect, dignity and care they deserve.
