Our Senior Centers at Mora and Wagon Mound

MVCHS operates the Mora and Wagon Mound Senior Centers. Both provide socialization and nutrition for the area's senior citizens. Anyone 60 years or older may participate. The needs of our participants are assessed utilizing a tool provided by the program's funding agency — Non-Metro Area Agency on Aging. MVCHS works with individuals on a one to one basis to identify their social needs.
