HBCOA at the forefront of aging issues

Officially recognized by the City Council of Huntington Beach as representing its local senior citizens, the HBCOA was awarded non-profit status in 1973 and has always been at the forefront of aging issues. During the design stage of the new Senior Center in Central Park, the City Council directed the HBCOA to provide input related to the overall design of the new center.

Senior Center Message

Greetings Friends,

November is a time of thankfulness, a time to appreciate family and friends and the wonderful moments that life has to offer. Even though 2020 has been challenging to say the least, we have found creative ways to bring people together while still being physically apart at the senior center.

In September and October, we set out on a series of new events, four drive in concerts and a drive through resource fair. All were new and unexplored as of yet in our world but we were happy to take on the challenge. And guess what, they turned out great! It was so fun to see everyone having a great time at the senior center!

We were able to open up the fitness center with modifications in October. We are able to book hourly appointments with a limited amount of members per session to allow for social distancing and safety precautions. It is a magnificent thing to see gym members back in action and working out once again! In addition, we started outdoor class programming including line dance, zumba, yoga, and tai chi in mid October. We are so excited to make positive strides while slowly and safely re-opening to the public.

Thank you all for your endless support and patience as we navigate this new normal. We miss you all very much and hope to see you soon!
