As part of the City of Tustin Parks & Recreation Services Department, the Tustin Area Senior Center's mission in "Making a Difference" is to provide for a day recreational setting, opportunities to learn, socialize and obtain assistance with human service needs.
The Compass is a quarterly newsletter that includes information on programs, activities, events, seminars, and support groups at the Tustin Area Senior Center. You can stop by and pick on up at the Tustin Area Senior Center or Parks and Recreation office for free, download a copy (just click on the icon) or for $6.00 per year we will mail one to your home.
We hope you find the Compass useful and pass on to a friend when you are done! Please contact the Tustin Area Senior Center for any questions at (714) 573-3340.

Tustin Area Senior Center Fund, Inc. Update:
Our Senior Center non-profit arm has been busy raising funds for many improvements and additions to our programs here at the Center. A brand new Transportation Van was purchased for our Senior Transportation Program and is now operational. In addition, our Kitchen Redesign Projected was completed September 30, 2008. Support from private donations, our Bingo program, proceeds from the Gift Shop and other money collections throughout the year from our own seniors, volunteers and staff make these projects a reality! Thank you for all of your support!
