History

Rooted in Redmond

In 1949, a group of neighbors and friends in Redmond, Oregon came together to build a community center for older adults. Over the decades, the Redmond Senior Center has become a place where older adults gather together to support each other and build a more resilient and vibrant Redmond community.

We continue to carry their spirit by cultivating opportunities for older adults to connect, engage, and thrive together.

WHO WE ARE

Vision

To grow into a community of belonging – a genuinely connected community where people are valued no matter their ability, age, culture, or background.

Mission

Recognizing older adults as valued community members, the Redmond Senior Center leads efforts and advocates to provide resources contributing to happier, healthier, and more meaningful older adult lives and a stronger community.

Values

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Commitment to DEI has to be more than words. We must embrace processes of self-reflection and then change when we realize our outcomes aren’t living up to our ideals of diversity, equity and inclusion.

Collaboration & Partnership

Stopping at nothing to find common goals with others and then showing up together to build useful, beautiful, and enduring opportunities.

Community & Stewardship

A thriving community looks and feels like a place of belonging. The heart of our work is to make sure older adults in Redmond are valued and connected within the community.
