The Multicultural Senior Center, located at 5026 196th St SW in Lynnwood, provides older adults age 60+ with a nutritious hot meal and a place to participate in educational presentations, programming activities, cultural celebrations, and socialization. In addition, there are bilingual social workers to help connect clients to resources dealing with housing, medical, financial, caregiver, or long-term care needs. Transportation to our dining facility can be provided, as long as space is available.
