Senior Center

The Castro Senior Center is located in Ellard Hall at Most Holy Redeemer Church in the heart of the Castro district of San Francisco. Since 1980 the Castro Senior Center (formerly Diamond Senior Center) has been part of the neighborhood serving local residents as well as members of the larger San Francisco community.

As part of Golden Gate Senior Services the Castro Senior Center is funded through the San Francisco Department of Disability and Aging Services (DAS). Our services and programs are available to all individuals age 60 and above and persons with disabilities.

Through our collaborations with other community leaders in aging such as The University of San Francisco, City College of San Francisco, On Lok, Openhouse, New Leaf and others we are able to provide a wide range of daily activities that promote healthy living, and socialization. We offer a wide range of activities and services that promote independence, health and over all well being.

Friendship, Community, Belonging

Programs of Castro Senior Center


The Castro Senior Center has a wide range of activities promoting healthy aging in the community. We offer classes and programs supporting independence and healthy lifestyle with weekly exercise groups as well as Tai Chi and yoga. Through our community partnerships with local colleges and health care organizations we regularly host presentations of interest to older adults on such topics as better nutrition, diabetes management, health care resources, aging in place and many more. Please check The Castro Senior Center schedule for all our classes and any upcoming presentations.


As part of Golden Gate Senior Services the Castro Senior Center participates in the Project Integration Program which serves individuals with developmental disabilities. The Castro Senior Center staff are experienced in working with individuals with special needs and work to promote the best quality of life for the participants within a fully integrated atmosphere.


With our on site meal program we serve a nutritious lunch every weekday between 11:45 and 12:30. There is no cost for the meal other than a suggested donation of $2.00.
