Mizell Senior Center has been serving the greater Palm Springs area for nearly 40 years, and is the community focal point on healthy and active aging. This is a place where Active Seniors come together for service and activity which enhances dignity, supports independence, and encourages involvement in and with the community. Take a look at our new video that highlights our expanded Meals On Wheels Service:
Programs support individuals in all phases of the aging process and promote healthy aging, wellness, and community participation. The mission of the Mizell Senior Center is to enhance the lives and welfare of adults who live in or visit our community. Programs and services at Mizell Senior Center are designed to meet the needs of low income seniors and to provide opportunities to combat loneliness, isolation, and maintain active productive lives. Loneliness, isolation, and depression know no economic boundaries. We have over 50,000 visits each year from individuals taking part in our activities and programs.
Mizell Senior Center publishes a Weekly e-Newsletter that is distributed to our members and supporters. The Newsletter contains a wealth of information about upcoming programs and activities at Mizell along with our weekly nutrition program menu. All of our Business Partners are listed in the Newsletter along with links to their websites so you can easily find out information on products and services that are important to you.

Specific programs include Meals On Wheels, exercise and fall prevention programs, congregate meals on and off site, counseling, health checks, and a variety of social and recreational programs to increase socialization. Our annual flu shot program provides low cost flu vaccinations to nearly 400 high risk seniors in partnership with Desert Regional Medical Center.
Hot lunches are served daily. We have a new lunch program. If you are over 60 years old and would like to participate, ask to complete the Enrollment Form.
