About the Senior Center

The Mission of the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center is to assist seniors in maintaining their health, welfare, and safety while respecting their need for independence, self-esteem, and dignity.
The idea of an organization designed to address the needs of local seniors was conceived by a group of neighbors, friends, and local professionals. The Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center opened its doors as a senior resource & response program in 1988 and operated from a donated space in the Rancho Santa Fe Library.  
In 2000, the Board of Directors initiated a fundraising campaign to purchase a historic Lilian J. Rice designed house (located on La Gracia) in the covenant of Rancho Santa Fe. In April of 2001, the property was purchased through generous donations from many local benefactors and the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center began operating in its present location.
Since its inception, the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center has helped countless seniors and their families by offering a welcoming place to receive assistance in times of crisis, as well as providing valuable senior resource information, educational programs, enrichment classes, and social activities.  As a social service organization, there is no membership fee or requirement to live in the community of Rancho Santa Fe to receive assistance or participate in programs. 
The Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center is managed by professional, knowledgeable staff, and a dedicated, volunteer Board of Directors. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in an unincorporated area of San Diego, programs and services are funded entirely by donations from generous supporters. The Senior Center has operated successfully for over 25 years with support from donors who realize the importance of providing senior services. Please consider making a donation in support of the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center’s services and programs. Please call (858) 756-3041 for more information.
