In-person activities at the Senior Resource Center now require reservations. Reservations are made on our new online portal.

Dear SRC participants,
We are pleased to announce the reopening of the New Hanover County Senior Resource Center on April 12, 2021 and the Nutrition site at Castle Hayne Baptist Church on April 19, 2021. It has been a long year of social distancing, staying home, and adapting services to meet your needs.
As you likely remember, in an effort to keep our older adult community safe from the spread of COVID-19, the SRC suspended in-person group activities on March 13, 2020 at 5 pm. Even though we couldn’t see you in person, we sprang into action to continue delivering essential services that were safe and made a positive impact for our community. Reopening on April 12 will mark 395 days since in-person group activities were held inside the SRC, and we are all so ready for our doors to be open again.
Over the past year, our building has also been renovated to better serve you, and I think you will find the upgrades more inviting and a better utilization of our space.
In order to ensure that reopening means staying open, we are adopting protocols recommended by New Hanover County Public Health and practiced by New Hanover County facilities. To ensure we can follow the capacity limits (based on the state’s current guidelines), we will be requiring participants to make a reservation for in in-person activities for the time being. We are finalizing those details now and will be back in touch with you before we reopen with details on how to sign up for classes and for in-person meals.
We will continue our drive-thru meals and virtual activities and offerings, as we have done throughout the pandemic. So we hope you continue to utilize those valuable resources.
I want to sincerely thank you for your patience as we navigated the past year. You have supported the SRC and one another, and I am so proud of how we have continued to connect with many of you. I look forward to seeing you soon, and I ask for your continued patience with us as we work through all of the logistics and changes that will come with reopening.
Above all, we are ready to serve you in-person again, and for that I am grateful.
