Comfort Golden Age Center's mission statement is to provide opportunities and resources to those over age 55 in the areas of
physical and mental health, nutrition and education in the Comfort, Texas area.
The Golden Age Center is a place for senior citizens to gather in an atmosphere that promotes and utilizes life experiences and skills.
The goal of the Golden Age Center is to provide an environment
that validates the changing needs and interests of the members, enhances growth and dignity and encourages connection with each
other and the Comfort Community.
In 1976, the Comfort Senior Citizens Organization was born. Comfort residents came together due to efforts of an enthusiastic group of
folks: Jack and Eoiline Bowie; Comfort's Poet Laureate, Ilse McElroy
and humanitarians, Harris & Dede Finney. These folks wanted the
best for Comfort's senior residents in the form of a Senior Center.
Their focus was on community action and partnership.
The Comfort Senior Citizens group's goals were two-fold: to
assist the elderly and to make Comfort an even better place to
live. In six years, their efforts resulted in an all around program
from fellowship to nutrition and health.
The Comfort Senior Citizens group joined the Chamber of Commerce
and became a central organization as an advocate for the elderly in Comfort. They provided medical screening clinics for everyone in the community and set up a nutrition center in the Methodist Church Educational Building. They awarded honorary memberships to those individuals who went the extra mile. These were the pioneers who
built the foundation upon which the Comfort Golden Age Center
The Comfort Golden Age Center (October 1987) is now a 501(c)(3) organization under the Comfort Golden Age Center Foundation and
