Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Community & Senior Services and our community partners deliver quality services to youth, adults and seniors that promote independence, dignity, choice and social well-being.
The Antelope Valley Senior Center is designed to provide an array of educational, social, and recreational activities to persons 50 years and older. Working with other County Departments and community based organizations the AVSC provides informative educational forums, recreational fun day trips, exercise, Tai Chi, art, quilting, crochet & knitting classes, arts & crafts, needlepoint, bingo, library services, card games (canasta, cribbage, & euchre), billiards, puzzles, diabetes class, and singing. Antelope Valley Senior Center also provides food bank distribution to income-qualifying seniors over 60, and telephone reassurance calls to the homebound. Adult protective and mental health services and programs as well as other social services, recreational activities, and evening programs (dance groups, English as a second language class, computer and photography clubs) are all part of the center’s activities.
