About Us

The Saratoga Senior Center is a non-profit, non-residential community center located in the heart of downtown Saratoga Springs. Adults age 50 and over can join for only $25 a year and participate in programs, trips & social activities tailored to adults and seniors. Those striving to maintain an independent lifestyle can make new friends, share in a meal, play a game, exercise, take a class or learn a new skill. The social interaction provided at the Center is essential to physical and mental health.

Our Mission

Since 1955 the mission of the Saratoga Senior Center is to empower seniors to achieve and maintain personal independence and individual well-being by providing the program structure and support services necessary for healthy recreation, companionship, social involvement, and problem solving.

Preserving the Past

The Saratoga Senior Center is proud to share the product of its Preserving the Past oral history project. In partnership with Skidmore College & M John B. Moore Documentary Studies Collaborative (MDOCS), and with generous funding through Adirondack Trust’s Lend A Hand Community Grant, this project involved chronicling, documenting and preserving stories of seniors’ lives to be passed down to generations to come. A big thank you to all who helped make this project a success.
