The East Valley Multipurpose Center for Seniors (EVMPC) is a program of the San Fernando Valley Interfaith Council Inc. EVMPC has been serving older adults, aged 60 and above, for the past 35 years. Our mission is to provide life enhancing services and programs so that our clients may enjoy a fine quality of life as they age. A non-sectarian and non-profit program, partially funded through government grants, the Center continues to strive for excellence and growth.
It's a shame you have to bag the senior center in this fasion. I have been a volunteer here for more than 10 years and they do a great deal of good for many people who seriously need it, seniors living ALONE, not in a Manor, who have NOBODY. I'm sorry about your mother's situation, but that's no reason to rant on in this fashion. And you should probably know that with the current cuts the government has made, there are many seniors who are going to go without, in which they're seeking donations (and my husband and I gladly sent a check). What I'm gathering from your comment is you want NUMEROUS seniors to suffer because of your mother? How selfish of you! Why don't you get up and take her out, you sound able-bodied, or maybe you're too busy being self-absorbed to be bothered... Just sayin.

East Valley Multipurpose Senior Center denies services to those who need it most!
This center will not allow low-income disabled seniors who are living in an assisted living home to partake in it's programs.
This center turned away my mother who suffers from chronic emphysema and bronchitis. She's forced to spend 24 hours in an 8x10 room with another disabled senior.
It's shameful that this center turned away my mother and all the other needy seniors who reside at Finegold Manor.
This poor lady's mind is in tact and she's dying to get outside and partake in stimulating activities, but East Valley won't let her participate.
She made her living drawing, painting and animating for the Disney Studios, as well as writing Blues and Jazz songs for local singers including BB King.
Now she's relegated to a sterile cell with severe dementia patients.
East Valley Multipurpose Center should have their funding pulled and reallocated!
I'm looking into making that happen now.
