We humans are “powered by connection.” It enhances our independence and well-being, providing a staggering 50 percent increased likelihood of survival. It’s also the belonging you feel at Collier Senior Center-Golden Gate.

With one in three adults feeling lonely, our founders knew creating a safe, diverse, caring space for seniors and caregivers to enjoy camaraderie and receive support was crucial to preventing depression, anxiety, dementia, stroke and heart disease while building resiliency, well-being and quality of life.
