Seniors

Senior Programs

Our Senior Centers provide hours of camaraderie, intellectual stimulation and nutritious meals to the frail, elderly and disabled in our communities.  In addition to serving a hot meal, both centers offer an array of activities, outings, workshops, classes, medical programs, transportation, referrals, and volunteer opportunities.  We operate the local senior center for the Town of Gilbert and the senior meals program in the City of Chandler.

Volunteers
Although we have awesome staff members who ensure operations are running smoothly and moving forward CCCC would not be able to serve those in need without the assistance of our dedicated volunteers.

Many thanks to all who help us fulfill our mission!
