Our mission is to identify the needs of older adults along with the available resources within the community, to educate the community-at-large on the problems of aging and the needs of older citizens, to design and promote services that are needed to serve older people, and to serve as advocates and enhance the lives of older adults in the community.

The Norwood Senior Center offers many legal, financial, recreational, medical and a host of activities including contract bridge, whist, cribbage, bingo, scrabble, exercise classes, oil painting, bus trips and so much more.  We invite all senior citizens to visit our center and plan to spend some time with us.  We are proud of our center where everybody is somebody.
