Although there has been much evolution with South-West Senior’s Outreach Society (Southwest Seniors), the original vision for a seniors’ centre in the southwest area of Edmonton came from Joanne Way, Pastoral Assistant of St. Agnes Parish. Joanne recognized a need for a place of renewal for seniors in our community and a need for assistance to caregivers of seniors requiring more support. From an initiation phase, investigation, development of programs, selection of facilities and implementation, South-West Senior’s Outreach Society received their Certificate of Incorporation as a society on July 13, 1986.
Our primary purpose is to provide a place where seniors can meet and establish a welcoming centre for each other. The end result is a group of seniors active in their own interests, while, at the same time, helping to enrich the lives of others in need through fellowship, shared activities, mutual goals and interest.
Please note: The building we are housed in, St. Agnes Church, will be undergoing major renovations from April – November 2018. We will continue to run our programs and activities but from various buildings. Please check out our General Information and/or March 2018 newsletter with details of where the different activities will be held.
