Mission Statement

The Mission of the Friends of the Lexington Senior Center is to provide support to the Lexington Senior Center and the seniors who use the center.

Background Statement The Friends of the Lexington Senior Center was organized in 2017 as a support organization for Lexington Fayette (Kentucky) County's new 33.000square foot  "state of the art" Senior Center.  Both the facility and the programing are exceptional. 
Impact Statement
In the last 12 months, we have launched our website, set up giving and endowment funds at Blue Grass Community Foundation, created a Development Plan, developed initial set of marketing materials and sponsored events to assist seniors in making their homes safer as they age in place..
In the next 12 months, our main goal is to increase awareness of the participants of the Senior Center and the community to the Friends group, how they can support our efforts, and have our software fully functional.  
Needs Statement
Build an Endowment for future income to provide improvements and replacement of items such as exercise equipment as it ages with heavy use.
Annual donations to support the day-to-day needs of the center since the city's budget is frozen for the the near future and the Center continues to experience growth. 
Geographic Areas Served
Fayette County
The Lexington Senior Center is available to all residents 60 years old + of Fayette County, Kentucky.
