Our Mission: "To welcome individuals of all ages to participate in programs and services that support a positive lifestyle in our community."
The Putnam County Community Center was founded in 1975 by a group of older adults looking for a place to
gather and socialize. For over 40 years, we have served our community with a special focus on the aging
and people with disabilities.
