History

The Longmont Senior Program was founded in 1972 with funds from Title III of the Federal Older American Act. Through City of Longmont and federal Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds, a Senior Center was built in 1976. Initial programs included cards, dances, and potlucks. As participation increased, more programs were offered, encompassing a wide variety of service areas. The Center progressed to a new status as a multi-purpose Senior Center when employment, outreach, information, and referral were added to an expanded recreation program.

As the population of seniors increased, so did the need for more space; and in 1980, an addition was built onto the original structure. In 1987, a second addition was completed which included a commercial kitchen. Longmont Meals on Wheels, Inc. moved in and began coordinating their home delivered program from the Senior Center in addition to serving lunch at the center 5 days a week. In 2001, the Senior Center underwent a major renovation and expansion costing over 2 million dollars (part of the Roosevelt Park renovation) and another partner moved in – Longmont United Hospital’s senior wellness AgeWell program. In early 2013 construction for expanded commercial kitchen space was completed. This added approximately 450 square feet at a total cost of $265,000 paid entirely by Longmont Meals on Wheels in exchange for a 20 year lease.

The Senior Center is owned, funded, and operated by the City of Longmont. Funds to support the center and the Division of Senior Services are from the City of Longmont.

Additional funding is provided by the Friends of the Longmont Senior Center, Inc. This 501(c)3 organization was created in 1981 and raises and receives funds that are used to enhance programs, services and the facility. Over the last 30+ years the Friends have donated over $1 Million to the Senior Center. 

Serious strategic planning began in 2006 with the county wide Creating Vibrant Communities in which All Age Well. This was updated in 2010  and 2014 as the Age Well Boulder County plan.In 2016, Longmont City Council approved the Envision Longmont Aging Well Plan and priorities.
