About Deaf Action Senior Citizens Center
Deaf Action Senior Citizens Center is open Monday through Friday from 8am to 4:30pm (closed on holidays). On site information and referral services provide seniors and their family members information about various agencies, support groups, medical facilities, and many other community resources available to them. We also serve as a distribution center for the North Texas Food Bank. Deaf Action Senior Citizens Center and Programs are made possible through a wide variety of support from both the public and private sector, including:
- Texas Department on Aging
- Texas Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services-Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services (DARS-DHHS)
- Dallas Area Agency on Aging
At the Center, seniors have the opportunity to fellowship with each other and share a healthy, well-balanced meal. Each nutritious meal is planned by a certified nutritionist to meet one third of an individual’s nutritional requirements, and to appeal to and satisfy senior adults. Provided through Title III Program funds – donations encouraged.
Deaf Action Senior Center provides transportation services for seniors who want to participate in the Senior Citizens Program, as well as for activities and for lunch. Rides must be scheduled a day in advance. Transportation is provided weekly to the local grocery store and pharmacy. Donations accepted and appreciated for this service.
