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.

Wyoming Hunger Initiative Supports Our Seniors
The Powell Senior Center has received a $250.00 donation from the John P. Ellbogen Foundation through the Wyoming Hunger Initiative program. This money will be used to purchase raw food items for our daily nutrition services.
We are grateful to have organizations like the John P. Ellbogen Foundation and the Wyoming Hunger Initiative who understand the daily struggles that our clients are going through. The increase in cost of living is affecting everyone, but with this donation, we can continue to provide our clients with their basic need of an affordable and nutritious meal.
With Much Appreciation,
Linda Dalton, Director Powell Senior Center

Enbridge Supports the Powell Senior Center's Future
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.
