Seniors

The DeCorso Community Center serves as the home for the New Providence Senior Citizens Club. Both the center and club provide opportunities for senior residents to socialize and participate in programs and activities in an atmosphere that acknowledges and affirms the dignity and self-worth of the older adult. Here, seniors can apply their wisdom, experience insight and skills in an environment of respect, confidentiality, trust, and support.

Donated to the Borough by the DeCorso family in 1959, the facility includes a library, solarium, kitchen and areas for presentations, performances, exhibits, games, exercise and parties. The Senior Citizens bus can provide transportation to many Senior Center activities and events.

By collaborating with other agencies and groups, the center is a rich source for information on healthy living, healthcare, assisted living options, and much more. Residents age 55 and older are encouraged to take advantage of this special place!
