Fruitvale-San Antonio Senior Center

The Fruitvale-San Antonio Senior Center addresses the cultural and linguistic needs of the community’s increasingly diverse elderly population by providing services in Cambodian, Spanish, and English. Over 45 seniors visit the Center every day, and each year we serve a total of 1,000 seniors age 50 and up, many of whom are mono-lingual and at risk of cultural and social isolation.  Our staff is dedicated to promoting healthy and on-going social, educational and physical development for seniors on a daily basis by a rich array of activities.

Centrally located in an ADA accessible space at the Fruitvale Village, right outside of the Fruitvale BART station and an AC Transit hub, the Senior Center is equipped with a full service kitchen, community rooms, small computer lab, game room, and the offices of on-site social service staff. We offer free transportation from a client’s Oakland home to the Center, and back again.

The Senior Center staff members are culturally and linguistically matched to the clients and can assist with referrals to other community services. For more information about the senior services and activities, please contact us.

Seniors can get a nutritious hot lunch every day at the center, provided by Spectrum Community Services, for a suggested donation of $3.75 for seniors and $5.00 for non-seniors. We recommend making your reservation a day in advance by calling (510) 535-6123.
