Warford Activity Center

Senior Services is the result of more than 4 years of research about senior programming. Following a Blueprint Study completed in January 2015, the City of Amarillo collaborated with the Amarillo Area Foundation, Mary E. Bivins Foundation and Baptist Community Services to develop and deliver an infrastructure and programming plan for senior services in Amarillo.
The Amarillo City Council appointed 15 members to the 21st Century Senior Services Development Advisory Board to oversee the development of the infrastructure and programming plan.
One result of the work and research was a Center Without Walls concept. This concept is a program delivery model maximizing resources and community partnerships while leveraging technology.
By implementing the model, we have developed physical and online environments to provide much-needed services to Active Adults 50+ in the Amarillo area.
