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.

Discussions with Local Wyoming Representatives 

December 2021

Join us for lunch and important discussions with our representatives about American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding and our need for a new facility. 

     - Tuesday, January 4: Representative Dan Laursen

     - Tuesday, January 11: Senator R.J. Kost

     - Thursday, January 13: Senator Tim French

     - Tuesday, January 18: Representative Rachel Rodriguez-Williams

We have been operating out of our current building for over 45 years. It is small, three-levels, not easily accessible to those with mobility concerns, and outdated with electrical, plumbing, and structural problems. We are concerned about how our current facility limits our capacity to keep up with the growing demands for senior services. 

Wyoming’s senior population is growing, and it is growing quickly. Wyoming—compared to other states—is predicted to show the second highest increase in people aged 65+ (58.70% increase) by 2030 (How Old Is Your State?). How will Wyoming prepare for and successfully accommodate our aging population?

We need the State to consider the challenges that senior centers like the Powell Senior Center are facing. We need the State to consider supporting us with ARPA funds for the building of a new facility. Help us show our local representatives our needs.

The Powell Senior Center Receives Pallets of Food

December 2021

The Powell Senior Center appreciates being one of several beneficiaries of a shipment of 48,000 pounds of food and other items. We received spaghetti sauce, peaches, rice, pinto beans, corn, green beans, beef stew, and chicken rotini soup. 

 

According to the Powell Tribune, this shipment is courtesy of Latter-day Saint Charities, a humanitarian arm of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Other beneficiaries of these items include the Lovell Senior Center, Powell Valley Loaves and Fishes, Crisis Intervention Services, and community members in need.

The pallets of food delivered to the Powell Senior Center will help offset some of the struggles the center has been experiencing with a tight budget, rising costs, and an increased number of senior clients using the facility and requesting home-delivered meals. These pallets of food will help save the center thousands of dollars while providing some items, such as rice, that have been difficult for the center to secure.

For more information about the massive load of food from Latter-day Saint Charities, check out an article in the Powell Tribune here.
