Senior Centers

PHA operates senior centers at Wilson Park (2500 Jackson Street), Cassie L. Holly (2100 Dickinson Street) and Emlen Arms (6733 Emlen Street), which provide many services and assist seniors with daily activities. The centers offer balanced meals and dance, aerobic and walking classes to help keep seniors healthy and active.

In addition to providing opportunities for seniors to socialize with one another, the senior centers also entertain residents by presenting movies, playing music, and taking trips around the city.

PHA and Philadelphia Corporation for Aging pay for all services provided, allowing seniors to enjoy these comforts at no cost. Centers are open to PHA seniors and seniors in the community. For more information, please call PHA's Eldercare Initiative at 215-684-1183.
