For over 45 years, Poway Senior Center has served our mission to provide an environment for our Senior community where they know they are genuinely cared about, respected, appreciated, and welcomed through offering a variety of programming, activities, a shared meal, and a warm smile.


The Poway Senior Center is a 501 (c) 3 non profit organization. The senior center incorporated in 1976 and was operated out of the Weingart Community Center up until the late spring of 2019. The senior center moved to its temporary location:

16315 Pomerado Rd. Poway, CA 92064 on the Church of Christ Scientist campus. The center will remain there until it relocates to the brand-new Mickey Cafagna Building in late spring of 2021.


Although the center remains closed to the senior population during the pandemic, the Board of Directors and volunteers are working hard to develop programming that can benefit our Poway Seniors while they shelter in place.
