Now is the time in your life to embrace and celebrate all that being an older adult has to offer. Stay active and enjoy new experiences at one of five senior centers in Milwaukee County, exclusively for adults 50+.
Whether you’re looking to meet new people, find a new hobby, exercise to keep your mind and body in shape, or even take a day trip, you’ll find an exciting array of social, recreational, fitness, and educational activities – all free or at low-cost in a safe environment.
Exercise can be so beneficial for people with arthritis, heart disease, diabetes or high blood pressure. It can even help manage stress and improve your mood! Ask for a free fitness center orientation at one of our senior centers.
Fill your days with fun!
Eating alone can be hard, and sometimes meal preparation is challenging. Instead, join your peers for a hot, well-balanced lunch at one of eight dining locations we operate throughout Milwaukee County.
Open to adults age 60+ (and a spouse of any age), meals are served at 11:30 a.m., Monday-Friday. The meals are free; but donations are welcome to help offset the meal cost. There are no income restrictions to participate – all are welcome.
First time dining with us?

Let’s Get Started
If you prefer being the passenger or just need a ride, our volunteers provide free, safe, reliable transportation to and from doctor appointments, the grocery store or the pharmacy. With our help, you won’t be stranded, and you won’t feel isolated.
Note: We do our very best to have volunteer drivers available for all areas, but sometimes certain areas may be low on volunteers. Please plan ahead for when you’ll need a ride.
