WESTSIDE RESOURCE CENTER
The Westside Resource Center promotes successful aging by providing an engaging atmosphere encompassing mind, body, and spirit. By creating a space full of celebration and friends, the Westside Resource Center combats isolation, promotes community, and encourages life-long learning. The Center is open to any Y members ages 55 years old and older.
The Westside Resource Center is brought to you through support from the YMCA of Greater Rochester, Lifespan, and the United Way of Greater Rochester.
