Woburn Senior Center

 

May 1, 2021, Update: The Woburn Senior Center remains open and staffed for business, but not yet for full-time public programming. As we have over the last year, the COA continues to maintain critical services along with outreach and referral programs, well-being checks, virtual exercise and social programs, as well as transportation services. We are working closely with City officials and the Board of Health to develop a phased public re-engagement. Check out the May 2021 newsletter for information, updates and some new program opportunities both online and in person: https://mycommunityonline.com/find/woburn-senior-center/bulletin/file/06-5209-20210501N.pdf

Feel free to call us at 781-897-5960. We look forward to seeing everyone soon!

Welcome to the Woburn Senior Center

The Woburn Senior Center is home to The Woburn Council on Aging(WCOA)Board. The WCOA is a municipal, volunteer board appointed by the mayor. It is the responsibility of the WCOA to identify the needs of Woburn’s elder population. The WCOA  and the staff of the Woburn Senior Center provide resources to educate the community at large regarding the needs of the elderly. This is done by designing, promoting, and implementing necessary programs and services.
