About Us

Our Mission - Our Vision

The Kuna Senior Center strives to provide an environment that encourages seniors to be active, to stay mentally, physically, and socially engaged, and to live lives of quality, meaning and dignity.

Our 'town within a town' atmosphere provides many opportunities for recreation, socialization, and entertainment. From live music and speakers to dominoes and day trips – we have it all!

The Kuna Senior Center is a community gathering place that enables participants to meet new people, develop emotional support networks, and gain a true sense of fellowship and belonging. The Center also functions as an information and referral source for other services.

In short, the Kuna Senior Center is a place where people want to be....



Kuna Senior Center Facts:  We are a non profit organization staffed mainly by senior volunteers.  Our bookkeeper and bus driver both have a paid position.  Our cook is an employee of Metro Meals on Wheels and our Saturday night Bingo Manager is paid thru the Bingo Commission guidelines.  All other duties are covered by volunteer help, we do not have a paid coordinator like some senior centers do. 

The Senior Center is very fortunate to have active board members who work together with other members to keep our center running smoothly.  As the President, I want to thank everyone for all the time and work they put in to making our center a success.
