The Lake City Seniors (LSC) uses a “without walls” model to bring intercultural senior center programming to North East Seattle. We began in the fall of 2015, after members of the community advocated through City Council to bring senior programs Lake City. We are a community partner site of Sound Generations. Our mission is to support people on their aging journey through community connections, access to services and resources, and empowering older adults to be socially engaged and live their best lives.
Before COVID-19 Lake City Seniors operated senior center programming Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 9am-3pm at the Lake City Community Center. Due to the pandemic we have moved all programming online through Zoom and other online platforms. Pre-pandemic we partnership with Sea Mar Community Health Clinics (Sea Mar), LCS offers in-person programming in Spanish three times a week, making it the only site offering senior enter programming in Spanish in North King County.
Since the pandemic our partnership has reached people online. LCS also collaborates with Chinese Information Service Center (CISC) to offer weekly programming in Mandarin & Cantonese, this is also still proceeding in an online format.
Lake City Seniors offer a wide array of online fitness classes, including chair yoga, tai chi, Latin dance, and enhanced fitness, while also offering various educational talks, classes, and recreational activities such as watercolor painting, Mahjong, Bingo, film screenings, and much more.

We have also teamed up with the Hyde Shuttle, Community Vans and various senior housing building to offer lunch delivery to older adults throughout the NE Seattle. Due to the pandemic we have moved all programming online through Zoom and other online platforms.
