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.

As a Tustin Area Senior Center Volunteer, you can make new friends, share your skills and talents, expand your interests, and enhance the lives of other seniors. Volunteer positions at the Center are as varied and individual as you are! Why not teach a class in art, crafts, music, health and fitness, or languages? Perhaps you would like to share your professional skills or provide office support. To find out about these volunteer opportunities and many more, please contact Sarah Randall at (714) 573-3347.
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!
Sponsored by the City of Tustin Parks and Recreation and the Tustin Area Senior Center Fund. The Cost is Free!
The "File of Life" program is a free medical and safety program for senior adults to assist emergency response teams in various crisis situations. The program components include an appliance magnet and wallet holder containing medical history and insurance information. All Fire Authority personnel for the Tustin Area have been instructed to look on the refrigerator of a senior adult resident for the "File of Life" information to aid in dealing with life-threatening situations.
