HANAC JVL Senior Center has provided congregate lunch service and programming to the community for the last 35 years. In 2014, the NYC Department For the Aging (DFTA) designated this senior center as an Innovative Senior Center. This newer model of senior centers offers enhanced programming, including wellness programs, additional access to health care services, arts, cultural programming, technology programming and volunteer opportunities.
