About Buckley Senior Center - Buckley, WAVisit website
Welcome to the Buckley Senior Center
The Buckley Senior Center is open to all men and women 55 and older in the greater Buckley area. The Center had its beginnings with an informal group of senior citizens who met regularly for companionship and recreation in one of several places in downtown Buckley during the late 1960’s and early 1970’s.
It was through the acquisition of state funding and federal Housing and Urban Development monies administered by the Pierce County community development block grant program, the Buckley Multi-Purpose Center was built in 1979. This enabled the Buckley Senior Citizens to have an unchanging and publicly supported facility and place to meet. The group went on to attain its non-profit status in November of 1990.
The purpose of this organization shall be to encourage senior citizens to enhance their dignity, support their independence, and encourage their involvement in the community through their participation in health and nutrition programs and services, and through educational, social, and recreational classes and activities. Buckley Senior Citizens strive to promote a home-like atmosphere at the Center for recreation and companionship.
