Naples Senior Center, a nonprofit organization that provides comprehensive programs and social services for seniors, announced that it has received $1.4 million from the Florida Department of Elder Affairs. The funds are earmarked for the organization’s new permanent home, which is currently being built in North Naples.
Construction began on the 30,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art building in November of 2021 and is anticipated to be completed and open by the end of this year. The building is located on 13.7 acres along Autumn Oaks Lane, just one block south of Immokalee Road.
“This funding from the state of Florida tops off our fundraising efforts over the last three years toward this very important endeavor,” said Jaclynn Faffer DSW, president/ CEO of Naples Senior Center. “We are grateful to Sen. Kathleen Passidomo for her help in securing this funding and look forward to welcoming everyone to our new home soon.”
