The center provides many programs, including social, nutritional, legal, financial, health, fitness, mobility, educational, and safety. The center acts as a resource for daily exercise, meals-on-wheels distribution, transportation, art workshops, benefits counseling, veterans' advocacy, and intergenerational programs.
