The Jay Community Center is submitting a funding request for our 2016 Senior Center Expansion.
The purpose of this project is to improve and expand the existing Jay Community Center facility to provide dedicated space for senior programming. The Community Center’s current facility is 32,000 square feet and offers a broad variety of activities for the entire community. Morning activities consist of senior programming, afternoons Jay County Boys and Girls Club; evenings are filled with fitness classes, youth sports practices and community meetings.
According to US census data, Jay County’s 55+ populations is expected to reach 32% by 2023. Senior programming at JCC has experienced rapid growth since 2012. Dedicated space would allow other JCC programming to continue to grow and provide expanded senior programming throughout the afternoon and evening.
