About Us

Celebrating 45 Years Helping Seniors!

The Mission of Hyde Park Center for Older Adults…

To enhance the intellectual, physical, social and spiritual well-being of older adults through supportive services and engaging activities. 

The Center was founded in 1974 by a committee of churches and neighborhood activists who saw the need for a center and services to support the independence of older adults. 

Services and activities for seniors include:

Transportation: Two drivers provide door-to-door service and assistance with boarding to medical appointments, grocery and drugstores, and Center meals and activities. 

Nutrition: Delicious, “home” cooked meals are served Monday, Wednesday and Friday. 

Social Work Services: On-site licensed counselor provides assistance with paperwork such as bill paying and applications for public benefits. 

Wellness & Learning: Activities to increase social interactions and maximize physical and emotional health include exercise classes, discussion groups, games, computer training and lectures.  

2017 survey results from our members:

  • 76% said they would not have been able to get the services they needed without the Center’s social work staff.
  • 100% of riders say the HPC’s transportation service helps them stay independent
  • 98% believe the meals help them stay healthy, and 93% say socializing with others is beneficial.
  • 82% of participants believe Hyde Park Center is helping them maintain their health.

Hyde Park Center is an independent, community based non-profit. HPC receives support from the Ohio Department of Aging through the Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio, United Way, neighborhood churches, foundations and private individuals.

Based on federal funding  we cannot charge for lunch, transportation or social services so that anyone, no matter what their financial situation, may benefit from services.

We do, however, ask for donations for all services to support our mission to enhance the lives of seniors.

Membership is not required to participate in any activity or service offered by HPC, but it is a simple way to show your support.  All members receive home delivery of the CenterPiece newsletter and a birthday-month lunch certificate.
