Fee Payment and Financial Assistance
The Orange County Senior Centers strive to be accessible and welcoming to all seniors. If you want to participate in senior center fee-based activities and are unable, or unwilling, to pay a required fee, you may still participate. A selection of free activities and programs are available to seniors age 55 and over*. Events/activities not eligible for financial assistance or waivers may include, but not limited to: trips/travel destinations; admissions or fees for center-sponsored activities at external venues; and activities held as fundraisers by the Friends organizations hosted at the senior centers. Accordingly, income-based financial assistance is available for most senior center offerings. In determining eligibility for financial assistance, the individual’s financial status is compared to current federal poverty guidelines.Link to page
