The Aging Partners Downtown Senior Center is as a community focal point for activities relating to aging. It provides maximum visibility and is readily available to those who need its services or those who have concerns for elderly parents and friends. It provides virtually a one-stop service for older persons as offices for them come under one roof.


Transportation is provided within a specific boundary area. Call the center for details, 402-441-7154. If you would like to use the van, the suggested contribution is only $2 each way, ($4 round trip). Please call the center the week before you need the van to schedule your pick up time.
