No one should ever grow old alone.

Every year, older adults are welcomed with open arms at Salvation Army Corps Community Centers across the country.

Dementia affects one in seven people over the age of 71.

Recent studies show that consistent human contact and interaction can reduce dementia and depression.

The Salvation Army showers senior citizens with love and serves them with respect.

Rather than simply allowing these wonderful men and women - who are so often the most vulnerable members of our communities - to fend for themselves against loneliness and depression, we organize community meals, offer joyful activities, visit the homebound and even provide affordable residential facilities for seniors.

We embrace senior citizens. Every day, The Salvation Army serves seniors through a variety of programs.

Community

Every Salvation Army Corps Community Center reaches out to the senior citizens in their community differently to meet their specific needs. Through localized programs, older adults can gather together to share interests, develop new skills and enjoy the company of their peers.

Activities

Engaging the minds and bodies of seniors helps keep them feeling young, active and happy. At The Salvation Army, they can enjoy educational classes, kindle friendships over lunch, relive their youth with dances, take pre-retirement seminars and countless other activities.

Seasonal Assistance

During certain times of the year there is assistance available to meet a specific seasonally based need. Seasonal assistance can consist of help with meals at Thanksgiving, Christmas food boxes or Christmas gifts! 

Residences

The Salvation Army operates several residential facilities for older adults, providing not only living quarters, but also an atmosphere of love, acceptance and encouragement. At Denver Citadel, we work closely with the senior residence that is on the same piece of property. Each week we have a bible study: Wednesday 10am, led by one of our church members. Residents are also welcome to join us for Worship.
