About Us

The Tenth East Senior Center is a Salt Lake County (SLCo) owned and operated facility. SLCo Aging & Adult Services provides the operating staff. The numerous activities supported by this center are staffed by countless volunteers.

History of the Tenth East Senior Center:

The first planned program of recreation for Salt Lake County Aging was initiated on October 11, 1955, at an open house in Salt Lake City Elk’s Boys and Girls Club.  The original group of thirty seniors grew to seventy five.  In June of 1956, Salt Lake City Commissioner, L.C. Romney, turned over the building at the Victory Tennis Club, then called the Jaycee Boys and Girls Club at 245 South 1000 East in Salt Lake City, for the exclusive use of older citizens.

Realizing the need for a larger facility, the Salt Lake Community Welfare Council, the Council on Aging, the Salt Lake County Commission and the Salt Lake City Parks Department worked together to make possible the opening of the now present Tenth East Senior Center on July 11, 1963.

Volunteer
Do you have a hobby, skill, or talent you’d like to share? Volunteering is the “heartbeat” of the Senior Center. Volunteers play a critical role in delivering quality programming as well as providing options for fit, active and engaged seniors. The Center has a wide variety of opportunities for all ages to volunteer their time and talents.  As the gap between available resources and the needs of seniors continues to grow, Salt Lake County Aging & Adult Services believes the role of volunteering is important and we are always looking to add new programs at the Center.  To find the volunteer opportunity that best suits your needs, skills, and time availability, simply talk to the staff.
