About the Senior Resource Center

The New Hanover County Senior Resource Center is  a State recognized “Senior Center of Excellence”.  We have had name changes (Services for the Aging, the Department of Aging, and the Senior Resource Center) and we have moved over the years (Fifth & Chestnut, Lucille Shuffler Building on Carolina Beach Road, and in February, 1992, the current location opened at 2222 South College Road). Interior building renovations were completed in October 2020. Although the names and locations have changed, the focus on senior issues, needs, and services remain our top priority.

Open Monday thru Friday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Thursday open until 7:00 PM for limited activities (except holidays, special evening, and weekend events).

    • Individuals fifty-five (55) years of age and older are welcome to participate in activities at the Senior Center.

    • To participate in grant funded programs (i.e. nutrition, transportation, etc.) require the seniors be at least sixty (60) years of age.
