Our Story

The North Plains Senior Center was incorporated in 1974 and the building was remodeled from the Atlantic Richfield Gas Station with assistance from the Washington County Community Block Grant Program. The Center has been remodeled several times: first to expand the seating area; second to build a professional kitchen and the last time to develop the space on the lower floor.

Since the opening of the Senior Center in 1977, meals have been served to Seniors in the North Plains Community. Pre-pandemic the Center also provided blood pressure checks, foot care services, assistance with taxes, day trips around the Northwest, exercise classes and many other activities. The Center has always relied on the donations of the Seniors enjoying their meals, the business community, North Plains area residents and various events and fundraisers throughout the year.

The ONLY government funds for operations have come from the City of North Plains paying for the water usage. NO OTHER forms of taxes or fees come from any governmental agency. We need help from the North Plains Community to refill our coffers so that services, activities and events can begin again.

The Senior Center is a non-profit organization

Incorporated as a 5013(c) the North Plains Senior Center is recognized as a non-profit, and donations may be treated as charitable deductions. The organization owns the Senior Center property which was a gift from the Atlantic Richfield Company (ARCO).
