Hunger isn't seasonal, which is why our year-round effort is to feed seniors and actively encourage socialization and involvement by providing resources and activity. Come have lunch with these seniors who are the keepers of history and see first-hand the families we help live full lives.
Locally and nationally, Golden Age Center is a vocal advocate for senior citizens joining with our community and PSA2 to give safe and consistent assistance to our seniors. .
Our Outreach team transports seniors to our site, and delivers hot meals to qualified seniors.
For seniors who are unable to come to the Center, we deliver lunches Mon. - Thurs. to their homes. Our van driver makes certain that each "Homebound" person not only receives a delicious warm lunch, but also has social contact with the "outside" world. The Golden Age Center delivers an average of 20/day homebound meals. Call our driver, Lyn Barber, (530) 739-8740 24 hours in advance. Monday through Thursdays call the kitchen by 10am to order homebound meals.

The Golden Age Center (GAC) is a non-profit organization for the benefit of Trinity County's seniors. We are partially funded by the Older American Act and adhere to all rules and regulations of the PSA2 Area Agency on Aging. Due to the fact that this funding does not cover all of our expenses, we depend on community donations, fund-raisers, donations of goods and services, and revenue from our Blue Barn Boutique to complement OAA funds. This is an Equal Opportunity Program. Discrimination is prohibited by Federal Law.
