Herndon Senior Center is open for membership to adults aged 50 or older. 

The Senior Center is community based and serves as a focal point for  senior adults by providing a continuum of services in a supportive environment and by serving as a link for participants, their families, and the community at large to resources offered by other agencies. 

Services are designed to be prevention and intervention oriented to meet the social, physical, emotional, and intellectual needs of the older adult. 

Senior Centers fulfill a unique need both by recognizing the diverse needs of the older adult and by understanding that seniors contribute lifelong experience, interests, and skills to their communities. 

The Herndon Senior Center has Wi-Fi !!
