All proceeds support Naples Senior Center and continued expansion of services. Established as a Florida nonprofit organization in 2011, the senior center provides critical programs and services addressing the emotional and social needs of seniors across Collier and southern Lee counties.

The senior center opened its doors on January 17, 2014. It is the only human services agency of its kind in our community with the mission of empowering seniors and families by giving them the tools to address life’s challenges, like the isolation and loneliness faced by so many local seniors.

“Even in Paradise, there are seniors suffering from loneliness, financial distress and hunger,” said Dr. Jaclynn Faffer, President/CEO of the Naples Senior Center. “The Sunshine State has a large population of seniors that need assistance. That’s where the Naples Senior Center steps in.”

The Naples Senior Center is “The Central Address for Senior Services.” It enriches the lives of adults 60 years of age and older by providing comprehensive programs and social services that support and strengthen seniors and their families, often at times of vulnerability and crisis.

The Naples Senior Center is nonsectarian and serves as a portal to several comprehensive services provided by licensed or certified professionals to meet the critical unmet needs of those diagnosed with ADRD and their caregivers as well as the area’s drastically underserved seniors population.

Programs include Structured Dementia Respite Support; Geriatric Management and Senior Outreach Programs; Emotional Support Services; and a Food Pantry. NSC also offers an average of 40 different social, emotional and wellness programs each week aimed at stimulating the mind. The need is there.

Membership in the Naples Senior Center has surged from 80 initial members to more than 1,400 today. The Center is able to provide such a broad spectrum of important support programs and social activities for seniors in our community thanks to its generous contributors and loyal supporters as well as its corps of more than 200 carefully vetted and trained volunteers.

The Naples Senior Center’s 8th Annual Evening for Better Tomorrows gala takes place at 6 p.m. at the Royal Poinciana Golf Club, 1600 Solana Rd. Tickets are $375 per person and Patron Tables may be reserved for $7,500. The presenting sponsor for the evening is FineMark National Bank & Trust.
