By 2030, adults ages 65 and above will double and outnumber youth, making the aging population the fastest growing population in the nation. There are currently 40 million Americans over the age of 65.
Located in the heart of Clairemont, the Clairemont Senior Center provides activities and services to individuals over the age of sixty. Funding for the Clairemont Senior Center was originally excluded from the proposed fiscal year 2017 Budget, however, I am pleased to announce $105,000 in funding in this May revision, therefore saving Clairemont’s only senior center. I applaud Mayor Faulconer for making Clairemont seniors a priority, and not an afterthought.
The Clairemont Senior Center serves as a bedrock for some of the most vulnerable members of District 6, and thanks to $105,000 in funding, the senior center’s doors will remain open.
Our long-term goal is finding a permanent operator for the senior center, where quality programs for our senior citizens will be provided.
