The Center's goal is to provide an environment that validates the changing needs and interests of the individuals and enhance growth, dignity and connection with each other and the greater community. Through creative programming, The Newton Senior Center provides participants opportunities and resources in the areas of physical and mental health, nutrition, recreation and education.

Philosophy of Volunteerism
The staff of the Newton Department of Senior Services is indebted to its corps of volunteers for all that they teach us through their work and support of our goals and missions. It is our philosophy that volunteers are our greatest resource. We try to place them in positions that will be pleasing and satisfying to them and will contribute to the overall betterment of the center and what it offers. Our volunteers are encouraged to speak their minds, in appropriate forums, so that we are always improving our systems and providing an ever better workplace. Our volunteers are never required to do any task that they do not care to, for any reason.
Van transportation is available to any Newton senior citizen, age 60 years+. See our Transportation page for more information.
