What We Do

From balance sessions to yoga, technology briefings to writing and art classes, lectures with topics from American history to zoology, the programs and services available through the Orcas Senior Center challenge, educate and inform.

What’s Cooking: There’s always something happening on the island and OSC is no exception. Plug into our activities calendar and know when lunch is served, when the next class begins or the next speaker presents. Boredom has no home at the Orcas Senior Center.

Be in the Know: How well do you know what’s happening that effects the senior population on Orcas? In Washington State? The country? If you come across a topic, a web site or an article of interest to the senior community at-large feel free to suggest it.

When you need something more: From time to time we all need a helping hand – a ride to a medical appointment or someone to help with the housework… whatever it is we’ll help hook you up with the assistance you need. Three times a week we gather for a nutritious meal and camaraderie at the center. Meals and Wheels and More ensures the islanders who cannot leave their home also benefit from a hot nutritious meal. Volunteers with our Hearts and Hands program brighten the days of those in our community who are homebound with one-on-one companionship.

How are we doing?: As hard as we try, no-one’s perfect. If you have a suggestion on how we can improve, please let us know. Remember, you get more bees with honey than vinegar.

Join Us!: Make no mistake – our members are the heart and soul of Orcas Senior Center and we simply could not do what we do without them. Please consider joining us and help maintain this vibrant corner of the island.

Donations: Like all nonprofits, donations from the community are our lifeline. Every single donation – no matter how small or how large – contributes to the success and survival of the Orcas Senior Center. Please consider contributing, with either a one-time donation or a sustaining contribution. Your donations are tax-deductible and every penny goes to a good cause.
