The Paso Robles Senior Citizen Center opened in July of 2002 and in 2013, the city of Paso Robles signed a contract with SVS to provide direct management and oversight of the operation, staff, and volunteers.
The Paso Roble 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 access. 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.
At the end of 2019 PRSC welcomed Linda Loebs as the SVS North County Coordinator. Her focus is to recruit for the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP). While recruiting for community-wide senior volunteer opportunities, SVS is emphasizing recruitment that fills the crucial volunteer needs of the local homebound 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+. With over 33 classes and activities offered weekly, the PRSC has become a dynamic and vital part of the 50+ community.
We offer daily hot meals through the Meals That Connect program, free monthly health checks with CAPSLO, grief counseling, exercise classes, social groups, weekly bingo, movies, a variety of card games, and no cost food giveaways through the Food Bank.
In addition to these classes and activities, we have “Brain Aerobics”, Music Appreciation, and much more. The PRSC is constantly reviewing activity and class offerings to ensure our participants have access to the highest quality programs. The Cuesta College Emeritus program enriches our offerings with two art classes, three hugely popular yoga classes, and a technology class. We continue to work with Cuesta College to add more classes of interest to our local senior and active adult community.
We publish a newsletter every two months that is filled with information about the Center as well as articles about health, travel, and events in our community. Members have the opportunity to interact with members of the Paso Robles City Council and City Staff Members through the Senior Advisory Committee.
There are over 3,000 visits to our Center each month to take advantage of all our classes, activities, and events: Health Fair, Resource Fair, Holiday Parties, a Document Shredding Day, our Celebrate Seniors BBQ fundraiser each October, and our main fundraiser of the year, Black Tie Bingo.
We encourage entire community to join the PRSC. At only $12/year for individuals and $15/year for households, this is an affordable way to support this organization. Your support helps with facility upkeep, free coffee, the newsletter, events, activities, and so much more.
Come on in and visit, our cheerful staff and dedicated volunteers will be happy to show you around. You will see why this Center is such an important part of our community.
