Peterborough Senior Center

"In 1998, Fenway CDC opened the Peterborough Senior Center (PSC) in the West Fenway. Since then, the Center has become an important congregating place for Fenway seniors. The Center and the programs that take place in it enrich the lives of seniors and address the isolation that leads to depression, poor health habits, and lack of emotional and health-related support. Programs at the Center include a broad range of health and physical-activity-related services, arts and cultural activities, intergenerational programs, educational programs and opportunities for civic engagement. Each week, more than 20 seniors participate in programs at the Center, evidence of the need for these services."

In recent years, Fenway CDC has been working closely with the Operation P.E.A.C.E. to work towards managing the PSC. With effective November 1, 2013, Operation P.E.A.C.E assumed the programming and operations of PSC as it overlapped the work that they were already doing. Operation P.E.A.C.E will continue to provide high quality services for the senior citizens.

Fenway CDC continues to house, serve and advocate for the needs of all of the Fenway's low- and moderate-income residents, including seniors, and plans to work closely with the PSC and its members toward that mission.

This senior center is located at 42 Peterborough Street, Boston (the entrance is between 100-108 Jersey Street).
