16th Annual Black History Celebration!
Center recognized for excellent service in the community.
This past holiday season, the FDSRC had a surprise visit by the KBPS news channel during our weekly curbside delivery. We had the wonderful opportunity to share what we have been doing to help during these hard times. Watch below to see how we were able to bring a little bit of Christmas cheer to our seniors, and the community at large.
A word from Executive Director Rosemary Pope…
“As we navigate through these extraordinary challenges and address the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we remain resilient and resolve to continue serving our Seasoned Community Treasures with a tremendous amount of pride, dignity, and love.”

Embracing and Enhancing Seasoned Minds
Since 2002, the Fourth District Seniors Resource Center (FDSRC) has worked to enhance and embrace the quality of life for our “seasoned ambassadors” by providing a wholesome and safe environment for them to thrive, while assisting them to live more independently and proactively. We provide quality services to our district’s lower-to-moderate-income seniors and their families through a variety of resources. FDSRC does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, and political opinion or affiliation.
The new George L. Stevens Senior Center was formally opened in March, 2006. The building itself is LEED certified, which means it is environmentally-friendly and “green” in materials, and in all aspects of the facility’s maintenance. This allows us to sell our energy back to the gas and electric company, which becomes a source that helps us sustain ourselves. The facility features a multipurpose assembly hall, meeting space, classrooms, an exercise room, a boardroom and a commercial-sized kitchen.
