All programs are open to everyone 60+ regardless of income. Drop by at a location near you to see what we offer. Your local Site Manager can assist you in completing introductory paperwork should you choose to join us regularly, so we can provide the best services to you.
Congregate meals include one hot meal daily that meets at least 1/3 of the recommended daily allowance of all nutrients required by adults provided in a group setting. Congregate meals are served at 12 of Fort Bend Seniors’ senior centers, which are located throughout Fort Bend and Waller counties and along the Harris and Fort Bend County boundaries. Fort Bend Seniors provides congregate meals five days per week at 10 of the locations in Fort Bend and Waller counties.
Activities at the senior centers include age appropriate nutrition education, fitness classes, field trips, arts and crafts, bingo, dancing, and holiday events.
All our recreation activities provide seniors the opportunity to socialize with those their own age, have fun, and enjoy the day. Additionally, those attending senior centers are provided with an important opportunity to visit with Fort Bend Seniors’ staff regarding additional needs and services.
Larger holiday celebrations such as Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and an annual Holiday Celebration take place at our flagship center, the Bud O’Shieles Community Center in Rosenberg, and transportation is available for all who want to attend.
Our centers are located in Rosenberg, Brookshire, Fresno, Fulshear, Houston (Southwest), Katy, Kendleton, Missouri City, Richmond, and Stafford. To see our 12 congregate center locations, visit our Locations page.
A monthly calendar of events is provided to seniors outlining upcoming recreational and social programs.
Fort Bend Seniors provides round-trip transportation through Fort Bend Transportation with their fleet of air conditioned, handicapped accessible vans, to each site location where a congregate meal program is available, without cost to them. (Transportation is available through transportation vouchers or on an as needed basis).
