Mission Statement

Tallahassee Senior Center and Services (TSC) enhances the independence and quality of life for seniors and caregivers through educational, social, recreational, and wellness opportunities. The mission of the TSC Foundation is to generate funding to support programs, services and participants of Tallahassee Senior Services.

Needs Statement
  1. An additional, new Lifelong Learning center to accommodate the growing number of participants attending senior center programs, especially in lifelong learning, art and music, and cards and games.  Available space for programs is scheduled at 97% capacity and office space is totally full. $250,000 to 10 million.
  2. Capacity to offer TALL graduate program days and additional L3X (lifelong learning) opportunities. $250—$90,000 annually.
  3. Support for Lunch Bunch and Field Trips to provide a monthly cultural and educational experience to primarily low income and isolated seniors. Seniors also benefit from the social networking and support from their peers through these trips. Helping keep people active and well, thus enhancing their independence, enables them to live in their community and home as long as possible. $1,000 per outing / $15,000 per year.
  4. Enhance Auditorium lighting to showcase student art exhibits. $30,000-50,000.
  5. Develop a TSC Foundation web site, including funding for set-up and capacity to maintain it.  $5,000-20,000.


Impact Statement


  1. Served approximately 13,000 seniors and adults through more than 180 different activities and programs each month.
  2. Enlisted 123 business partners, including 1 new Platinum and 1 new Ruby sponsors and managed 410 volunteers.
  3. Increased service units by 15.7%--the largest single year increase since the Center opened in 1978.
  4. Facilitated numerous large special events, including TALL Class 7 (senior leadership), L3X lifelong learning, Silver Stars community recognition of active adults, Active Living Expo, Baby Boomer Birthday Bash, etc.
  5. Co-hosted Capital City Senior Games, attracting over 300 athletes, many of whom qualified for the State Games.


  1. Continue serving 13,000+ seniors and adults through more than 180 different activities and programs each month.
  2. Maintain and increase business partnerships, adding another new Diamond sponsor ($5,000+).
  3. Launch our Legacy Society by inviting potential donors to special receptions at the Senior Center.
  4. Facilitate the auditorium and art panels. TALL Class 8 (senior leadership) and expand L3X lifelong learning regionally.
  5. Enhance Fitness classes by obtaining outcomes that measure the impact and benefits of each class.
Background Statement
The Tallahassee Senior Center is housed in a 80-year-old building, built as a National Guard Armory in 1935. It is very well-known and recognized locally as “one of the busiest places in town.” Centrally located in Tallahassee and the Big Bend area, participants come from Tallahassee, Leon County and neighboring counties to receive preventive health screenings, participate in education and recreation, and connect with valuable resources that help them maintain independence. Since 1978, the Leon County Old Armory has served as a multi-service senior center. With this central facility as the headquarters, services have reached into 15 additional neighborhood programming sites. TSC staff is housed at the main center, where programs are coordinated and strategically planned to serve the entire community by the Tallahassee Senior Citizens Foundation and the City of Tallahassee.

Each year it becomes more critical for TSC to repair, maintain and update its facility to accommodate long-time participants, as well as new seniors and baby boomers. TSC serves primarily Tallahassee–Leon County, with 92 percent of participants living in Leon County, 25% of who participate at a rural outreach site. Approximately 13,000 individuals participate in TSC activities annually, 450 on an average daily basis. According to the 2004 Profile Study completed by DOEA and the Florida Association of Senior Centers, TSC is one of the largest and most active senior centers in the state.

Multiple generations of older adults with a wide range of interests participate at TSC, including 13 percent age 80 or older. TSC is also attracting younger boomers and seniors, 21.7% under age 65. TSC is proves to be a thriving venue for people to stay active and connected. Named as a retirement “hotspot” by 2015, by Consumer Reports Money Advisor, Tallahassee must accelerate its efforts to accommodate all seniors. TSC works to ensure senior-friendly amenities are affordable for older adults. Senior Center services are the most cost effective of long-term care services and a critical part of an Age-Friendly Community.

Board Chair Statement
By Linda Roberts, President 

The TSC Foundation supports the Tallahassee Senior Center and its services by raising and soliciting funds which allows them to continue their mission. As a participant, volunteer, and president of the board I have seen how positively these activities impact our senior community and the community at large. Active, happy, healthy seniors not only find joy in their lives, they continue to volunteer, participate and guide others.

Each board member is unique in his or her own way. This diversity brings ideas from all ages, groups and backgrounds. Whether it is fundraising, sponsoring, encouraging memberships or helping in many other ways, all enjoy serving. 

We have one of the finest active adult programs in the country. The care and concern shown by staff is heartwarming and affirming. The many volunteers are loyal and kind. As our senior community continues to grow, the services and activities will become even more necessary and valuable.

With your help and generosity, we can provide excellent senior services to enhance their lives and ours now and in the future. Thanks for considering Tallahassee Senior Citizens Foundation. 

CEO Statement/Executive Director Statement
Viable options for seniors to stay well and remain living independently in their communities is the desire of all citizens. Senior center services provide the most cost effective means for people to continue to participate in the community, stay socially fit, and postpone the need for more costly in-home or institutional services.
The average age of our participants is early 70's. The largest area of growth is with the age 65 and under population – 30 percent, while at the same time almost 100 people age 90 and older are “aging in place” at the Senior Center, still participating in the activities they love and staying connected to their support network of friends. It is imperative that staff and facility conditions stay current, in regard to furnishings and a healthy environment for this wide range of ages.
New seniors and Baby Boomers are seeking opportunities to plan the next stage of life, retool skills, obtain new training, or pursue educational interests. They are seeking flexible work or service opportunities that use their skills and experience in meaningful ways, and opportunities for connections to others of their age and throughout the community.
Senior Center programming will need to look more like technology and media centers, focusing more on lifelong learning. Brain fitness programs and classes will be more popular. Lunch-time and evening educational series will allow still-working seniors and adult caregivers to attend. Leisure Learning classes continue to offer an affordable venue for seniors.
Description The TSC Health Program provides the tools seniors need to continue an active and healthy lifestyle for optimal aging. More than 20 different fitness classes are offered each month, taught by certified senior fitness instructors. Preventative health screenings and health education programs are offered to empower individuals to learn about current wellness issues and to monitor their own health. A registered nurse coordinates the many screenings and educational programs, as well as assists seniors with health counseling and accessing health and medical resources available in the community. Routine screenings include blood pressure, glucose, vision, and hearing, all provided by service partners and volunteers. A few of the other services include podiatry and massage therapy. Flu shots are given annually and periodic spa days and pain clinics are quite popular. While the City supports the Coordinator position, all program supplies and the Aide are funded by the TSC Foundation.

Examples of Program Success
Lifelong Learning is not a single experience, but a journey that continues each day, with small steps and giant leaps beyond what is familiar. Boomers and seniors challenge their brains and enhance their quality of life with new opportunities and grow socially, making friendships along the way. Research shows that staying mentally stimulated and engaged is as important to optimal aging as remaining physically active. TSC offers opportunities through volunteering, travel, cultural and personal enrichment classes. Classes include languages, computer, music, technology, and art. Over 400 participants attend L3X Lifelong Learning Extravaganza, classes taught through field trips, entertainment, art, culture, and lectures, in partnership with academic and cultural resources. Another signature program, TALL Tallahassee Active Lifelong Leaders, in partnership with Leadership Tallahassee, promotes civic engagement among 55 plus population by providing an intense snapshot of the community.

Description TSC Art offers a supportive environment for beginning and advanced artists to receive guidance from experienced instructors and opportunities to display their work. Our Art classes make a difference in people’s lives, allow them to learn something new, engage in creative thinking, and give them confidence to hang their art in a gallery. Annual art exhibitions of students’ work with public receptions for family and friends are held to celebrate their accomplishments. As important as the time painting is the time waiting for the paint to dry–the camaraderie and critique, peer learning, and exchange of ideas with fellow participants. On-going classes meet weekly while workshops vary by class. Mediums include drawing, figure drawing, pastels, acrylic, oil and watercolor painting, pen & ink, clay, and fiber art. Classes are limited so each student has quality time with the instructor.

Program Success Monitored By

Art Council made up of art teachers and representatives from every art class meet monthly to discuss and make recommendations on the direction of the program, suggestions, ideas, and to disseminate information back to the classes/participants.

Examples of Program Success
Students express how their art classes help them through family illnesses and the death of loved ones. It has helped some with recovery after a stroke or other debilitating illness or accident. It gives them something else to think about, helps with stress and improves self-esteem and a sense of pride when they give loved ones their artwork, sell their artwork and/or win awards for their artwork at Senior Center art exhibit and other regional art exhibits.
Five years ago there was wall space for each student to put three paintings in each exhibit, now they are limited to one painting per artist because of increase of number of artists.

Increase in number of art classes, expanded the type of art classes and locations where our art classes are offered. We now have repeating classes at Bradfordville, Lake Jackson and Ft Braden.

TSC offers leisure activities for everyone to help ensure health and wellness goals are met. Recreational opportunities include art, crafts, dance, music, cards, outings and special events. Travel options include one day trips, one or two nights at exciting destinations or longer trips to far-away places. Capital City Senior Games attracts more participants each year ranging at 13 venues over seven days, starting with Pickleball and ending with Archery. Athletes of all abilities, novice to expert, compete in swimming, table tennis, cycling, and more. Cheerleaders and volunteers are welcome. The Active Living Expo brings community resources and screenings together in one place to allow individuals to gather information. Over 100 vendors display their products and services to help make your life healthier and more relaxed. Dance comes in many different forms from line, square, contra, ballroom and swing. The variety of styles allows for a wide array of music.

Dee and Mary Beth toured Ireland with a trip that was booked through the Senior Center. They traveled the Emerald Isle on a TSC benefit tour with Collette Vacations. Upon her return, Mary Beth commented that, “Ireland’s beauty and warm welcome to visitors made me feel as though we had stepped back a moment in time. It is so peaceful there. What a wonderful tour—expertly planned and organized. Very nice!” The widely traveled adventurer went on to say, “I would definitely travel with TSC on a getaway again.” 
Senior Outreach takes services, resources & programs to rural Leon County, focusing on enabling seniors to live independent, healthy and engaged lives. Six County community centers in Bradfordville, Fort Braden, Miccosukee, Chaires-Capitola, Lake Jackson & Woodville host fitness, art, computer, bridge & recreational activities, plus monthly Lunch & Learns. L&L events feature health screenings, social services, & community resources. Many attendees would be socially and physically isolated without these events. The GaP (Grandparents as Parents) program serves over 100 grandfamilies whose caregivers are in unplanned parental roles, usually accompanied by difficult circumstances. Many need help navigating the complicated systems of custody, health, education, child care and financial assistance needed. Monthly support luncheons feature resources including legal assistance, health education, & information on financial support through the DCF. Monthly support luncheons feature educational presentations, health screenings & access to community resources including legal assistance and information on financial support through the DCF.

Program Comments
CEO Statement/Executive Director/Board Comments
By Judi Taylor, past Board Member.  I have seen first-hand the difference the Senior Center can make in the quality of life of a senior. My Dad enjoys playing Canasta 3 times a week and has taken many art classes in the past.  These activities provide hours of enjoyment, as well as a meaningful social life. He also takes advantage of many other offerings at the Senior Center, such as seeing the podiatrist on a regular basis, income tax preparation, annual flu shots, and presentations on many other issues.  I think Tallahassee is lucky to have such a wonderful resource for our seniors. If you haven’t checked it out, drop by sometime and take a tour!

CEO Comments
Trends that may impact program and financial requirements: Tallahassee’s active adult population age 60 and older has grown by 23% since 2003. As projected, the past several years-the Tallahassee Senior Center is “bursting at the seams.” A review of space and parking and the need for additional professional staff are essential to keep pace with the demand for more programs. The staffing has remained the same for six years, while programs have grown significantly over that same time period. Even with 15 neighborhood programming sites, the challenge is continued growth without additional staff to coordinate other locations and programs.
The frequency of Senior Center participation has increased over the past five years. People coming at least once a week grew from 78 to 85 percent, thus explaining the higher volume of traffic in the building on a weekly basis. Lack of additional space impacting new programs has been seen as one of our greatest challenges, which is largely due to our success, as well as the growing number of older adults living in Tallahassee. 
We continue to address our space issues by adding neighborhood programming sites, but that has not resolved the space issues at the main TSC. Programming space is still at 97 percent capacity, while office space is 100 percent occupied. Student interns must float from office to office or be placed off-site. Some program growth is on hold due to a lack of work space for additional staff and volunteers.

Community Initiatives and Economic Impact:
Lifelong learning programs continue to grow beyond our capacity to meet the demand. Our senior leadership TALL– Tallahassee Active Lifelong Leaders– program increasingly gains visibility and credibility in the community as a model for educating mature adults about civic engagement. Currently we are only able to offer one 8-week session per year, while there is enough demand to fill two classes. An additional program staff person is needed to handle the demand, along with the programs listed below.

L3X–Lifelong Learning Extravaganza
–increased by 25% to more than 400 participants in 2014, and is anticipated to continue to grow and attract guests from the Southeast region of the country, thus having a positive impact economically.

Senior Games
has reached a new level of success with over 300 athletes and will demand additional staff efforts to coordinate the number of athletes and maintain the quality of the events.
The Choose Tallahassee initiative will market and potentially attract an additional 1,000 active older persons relocating to Tallahassee.
