The Paso Robles Senior Center opened in July of 2002 and in 2013, the city of Paso Robles signed a contract with Senior Volunteer Services to provide direct management and oversight of the operation, staff, and volunteers.

The Paso Robles Senior Center is a beautiful 5,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility featuring a lovely “help yourself” library, a spacious banquet room with a small performance stage, a meeting room and two computers with internet ac-cess. The Center is also a wonderful resource for discovering services for seniors and the active adult population 50+, as well as many meaningful volunteer opportunities to serve our local community.

It is the mission of the PRSC to be a community-wide resource for active adults by providing information, activities and socialization that enhance the quality of life and autonomy of individuals 50+. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we have had to close our doors to the community. Fortunately, there is staff available M-F, 9:30AM-12:30PM. Do not hesitate to call with questions about the resources available for our older adult population., 805-238-3770. We are always ready to help. Leave a message and staff will get back to you within 24 hours.

During this time, we continue to offer daily meals through the Meals That Connect program. This meal program is FREE to all individuals age 60+. Meals can be picked up between 11:30AM and 12:00PM. If you have not signed up for this FREE program yet, please call the Meals That Connect Program at 805-238-4831. An application will be sent to you. If you are unable to pick up your lunch-time meals, there is also a delivery component to this program.

During this time there has been an increase in the need for food. The Food Bank continues to do food giveaways here in the parking lot on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month. It is a drive-up service with the food already in a bag for you to pick up. The Food Bank begins at 10:00Am and closes at 11:00Am. There are of course other locations in Paso Robles where you can access the Food Bank. Look up their calendar at www.foodbank of San Luis Obispo.org.

The SLO Legal Assistance Foundation is still providing appropriate legal aid to oder adults. Currently, they are doing phone call appointments and can be reached at 805-543-5140. Again, if you are in need of these services, do not hesitate to call them.
