Nashua Senior Activity Center

Since The Nashua Senior Activity Center first opened in 1978 it has been a focal point for more than 2,000 people over the age of 50 in the greater Nashua area who depend on the center to support their independence, increase their social network, and improve their quality of life. 

As a regional non-profit 501 [c] 3 charitable organization, the NSAC is supported entirely through fundraising and donations from the local community. Our mission is to support the improved health, well-being and independence of adults over 50 years of age through member benefits that include fitness, recreation, social networking, and  cultural and educational programs.

The Nashua Senior Activity Center offers more than 60 different programs each year at the center and at off-site locations.  In addition seniors have a fully equipped fitness room for their use. The center also has a lending library that has the most current literature available.  Partner organizations are also on site at the NSAC.  These organizations include Servicelink which provides additional resources to seniors in need, CPTE, a physical therapy service and St. Joseph Community Services which provides 400 meals per day to the Meals on Wheels program and offers onsite daily lunch Monday - Friday.

Members of the Nashua Senior Activity Center recognize the need to give back to the community by singing at local nursing homes, knitting hats for the American Cancer Society and making mittens for children in need.  More than 100 seniors volunteer their time doing mission critical work in support of the organizations goals.  Additionally,  the center operates an all volunteer Thrift Store open to the community offering bargain prices and making donations of clothes and household items to the Salvation Army and other charitable organizations.  Our Annual Talent Show and the Senior Picnic are hallmark events that have been held since the center's inception.
