In 2000, Peninsula Family Service took over operation of the older adult program at the Fair Oaks Community Center. Over the years, we have expanded services to meet the ongoing and emerging needs of older adults looking to maintain their health, independence, and quality of life. Last year, we helped more than 3,000 participants age in place by offering nutritious meals, fitness classes, health screenings, and social activities for free or reduced costs.

To increase our impact, we supplement our programs at Fair Oaks with complementary services by connecting participants with community resources. From Redi-Wheels to Meals on Wheels, we make sure our older adults have the tools and support to stay healthy and happy.
