The Precinct 2 senior program provides various activities throughout the year within our 17 community centers. Area coordinators plan activities and register local senior citizen groups to use the Precinct 2 buses for various trips and outings. Special outreaches include a Nursing Home program, homebound and congregate meals, vouchers for transportation, and social services.
