About Us 

The former Senior Club, housed in the Cheney Family Branch of the Boys & Girls Club for the past 9 years, was reborn as the Gig Harbor Senior Center (GHSC) on May 1, 2019 when it officially came under the umbrella of the Greater Gig Harbor Foundation (GGHF).

This partnership presents a significant opportunity to help fill a critical void in our community.
 
The nonprofit status granted to the GHSC enables the newly formed organization to operate under the Foundation’s umbrella as a fully functioning 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity.
 
The GHSC will continue its important work to provide much-needed services for our community seniors.
Thank you to to the City of Gig Harbor, Pierce County, PenMet Parks, Boys & Girls Club of the South Puget Sound, the Greater Gig Harbor Foundation, and all who have come together to help in the search for a temporary home/homes for the GHSC programs. Our search for a long-term solution continues.
