Powell Senior Center

We provide people aged 60+ with a comfortable place to socialize and meet their educational, nutritional, and physical needs in one place. For those unable to come to the center, we extend services to their homes and provide them with transportation services.

 

Our mission is to empower and encourage individuals in our community to be independent. We accomplish this mission through numerous collaborations throughout our community.

Updating Wyoming's White Cane Laws
November 2022

The Wyoming Council of the Blind (WyCB) has recognized the need to visit and re-evaluate our state's White Cane Laws and accompanying regulations in our Driver's Safety Manuals.

WyCB is mounting an effort to collect as much anecdotal information as possible to build a case for necessary changes. If you have experienced a potential or actual vehicular accident while traveling with a white cane or guide dog within Wyoming, the WyCB wants to hear your story.

Enbridge Supports the Powell Senior Center's Future 

August 2022

 

The Powell Senior Center thanks the Enbridge Fueling Futures, Benevity Community Impact Fund for a $2,500 donation for our new building costs. This donation, as well as donations from other organizations, foundations, and community members, helps us continue toward our goal of building a new facility that will benefit our community now and well into the future. 

 

The Powell Senior Center is 501 (c) (3) Non-Profit Organization that was founded in 1973. Our mission is to respectfully empower and encourage individuals in our community to live independently. 

 

We have been operating out of our current facility since 1975 (over 47 years). Our building is not senior-friendly with three levels and is not ADA accessible. It has significant roofing, electrical, plumbing, and structural problems that are beyond reasonable repair. It lacks parking space, as well as space to accommodate our expanding programs and services. Furthermore, our senior population is increasing at one of the fasted paces in the country.

 

Our new facility—a one-level building—is designed so that all services will be accessible to all our seniors and community members; ADA compliancy is a design priority. It is spacious and includes multipurpose rooms to accommodate all our programs and services. It has a larger dining area that will safely seat 200 people (including any mobility equipment). The ample parking spaces are close to the building, and it has covered drop-off areas for our seniors/handicapped clients.

We appreciate that the Enbridge Fueling Futures, Benevity Community Impact Fund supports our vision of a modern, accessible building. We ask for more foundations, organizations, and community members to also support us. 

To learn more about our new facility and funding needs, call the Center at (307) 754-4223.
