Programs for Seniors

A- A A+

Health and well-being, especially with the prospect of extended longevity, is the desire of seniors, families, and the extended community. We are on a mission to help seniors thrive and live fully.


The YWCA Houston Centers for Senior Life offers a daily nutritional meal, socialization opportunities, exercise, nutrition education, information and assistance, and a variety of other life-enhancing programs. Participants participate in health education and fitness activities at one of our 11 centers located throughout the Houston area.


Where applicable, transportation can be made available to and from the center. To qualify for the YWCA Houston Congregate Nutrition Program, a person must be at least 60 years old and/or the spouse of a 60 or over participant.

Centers offer seniors valuable education related to healthy meal planning, health care, and accessing medical benefits and services. We are currently located at the following centers listed below:
