About Us

We Are a 501(c)3 Non-profit Organization

The Senior Center of Elk Grove is one of only four self funded non-profit Senior Centers in California.  We are not run by the City, County or Recreation Department as most Centers are.  We maintain complete control over our programs and services , so we may offer relevant and needed service for our seniors.

We Are a 50 and Better Activity Center

The Senior Center of Elk Grove believes that healthy, happy seniors are vital to our community.  Staying fit and active helps seniors maintain their independent, vibrant lifestyles.

Give Us a Try

Come on in for a tour and let us show off our active and friendly Center.

Gadabouts Travel

Our travel program is a safe and engaging way for the seniors to visit destinations both near and far. Take a trip to a near by casino, behold the beauty of the Presidio in San Francisco, catch a play or musical such as Million Dollar Quartet and live the excitement of Safari West. We also offer trips across the U.S.  and the world all at a very reasonable price.

Salad Bar

Join us each Tuesday and Wednesday for a healthy, deliciously fresh Salad Bar available to everyone. Cool salad greens, juicy tomatoes, crisp carrots, olives and other delicious vegetables, croutons, sunflower seeds, dressings and cheese make our salad bar the perfect lunch spot for seniors and anyone who enjoys a healthy meal. 

Very reasonable pricing - $3.50 for In-House and $4.00 for To-Go salads.

Le Cafe'


Our friendly Café is the perfect spot to grab a cup of coffee, hot chocolate, water, soda, juice, tea or one of the variety of snacks we offer. Le Café is also stocked year round with beautiful hand-crafted items and cards for all occasions so you can purchase a special gift for friends or family.. Animated, lively conversation can be heard coming from the Café. Stop by and make a new friend.
