The Levy Senior Center is proudly a green facility. We reduce waste by serving lunch on dishes instead of paper products and providing recycle containers to encourage users to recycle.
The center has provided its mix of fun and helpful services since 1971 and in our award-winning building since June 2002. The building design is a one-story, 26,000 square foot building located on the southwest side of Evanston. The facility has three major types of activity spaces: classrooms, general-purpose rooms, and a large multi-purpose room. The building surrounds a central glass walled courtyard with a flourishing garden.
The Levy Senior Center provides numerous activities & services that cover the scope of senior living. The fitness room, game room, garden, computer lab, dance studio, basketball court, and theatre stage lend their spaces to countless senior activities. Levy Center seniors can regularly be found attending dance lessons, academic lectures, book clubs, concerts, fitness classes, writer workshops, chef’s demos, jewelry-making classes, social clubs, and barbecues.
There are a number of clubs and sports offered as well. The men’s and women’s basketball teams qualified for the National Senior Olympic Games and our Choraleers sing at venues throughout the area. We also provide a full range of senior health and practical services. Services include blood pressure screenings, flu shots, income tax preparation and Rules of the Road driver’s license courses.
Programs for seniors were held at the original facility on Maple Ave. for the next three decades before a new facility was necessary to adequately serve future generations of seniors. Seniors in the Evanston community formed a committee and directed the future of the new facility. This committee placed care into planning details great and small, ranging from fundraising to furniture. The new facility, now on Dodge Ave., opened its doors to familiar faces and new friends in June 2002.
