I am a fundraiser for
Durham Center for Senior Life
Founded in 1949 as the Golden Age Society to provide neighborhood clubs for seniors, the agency received its first Older Americans Act grant in 1966, and officially changed its name in 1968 to the Council for Senior Citizens and then again in 2010 to the Durham Center for Senior Life (DCSL). Today, the Durham Center for Senior Life, which is an independent non-profit organization, is designated by the State of North Carolina as a Center of Excellence. With four senior centers, including the downtown Durham Center for Senior Life, the DCSL offers a wide array of programs and services for older adults. Services include congregate meals, transportation, adult education, exercise classes, socialization, health promotion, caregiver support services, information referrals, and case assistance. In addition, the DCSL operates the only Adult Day Health Center in Durham.
