Engage older adults 55+ nationwide

Approximately 11,400 senior centers throughout the U.S. serve more than 1 million older adults ages 55+ daily, providing onsite social activities, arts and fitness classes, nutrition services, community programs and volunteerism, and special events. The largest portion of the senior center community consists of adults ages 58 to 76 from the Baby Boomer generation (those born 1946-1964). Baby Boomers comprise 21.5% of the U.S. population (Source: Statista). The Boomer segment is the wealthiest U.S. generation, with buying power of approximately $2.6 trillion and spending dominance in 119 of 124 consumer packaged goods categories (Source: FONA).
