About Shawnee Senior Center
The Shawnee Senior Center originally began as a collaborative effort between the City of Shawnee and the seniors in the community. Each party raised $500,000 to begin construction on the center. In 1984 our doors opened to the public for the first time. We have maintained a standard of excellence for our treatment of seniors since our foundation. In 2014, we were recipients of the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits ONE AWARD, for Senior Services
Our Philosophy is simple. We are committed to creating a welcoming and nurturing place for seniors to feel comfortable visiting daily. We believe in fostering relationships built on trust, appreciation, mutual respect, and a little humor. Through generous donations and grants, we can provide our seniors these programs completely free of cost with some minor exceptions.
