About Us


Who We Are

Heritage Senior Center is a non-profit organization, funded in part by the York County Area Agency on Aging.

Our mission is to provide programs and services for those age 60 and over that are designed to overcome loneliness, combat boredom, enhance self-esteem and personal growth and encourage independence through involvement in the community.

The Staff and Center are overseen by a Board of Directors.

Heritage History

Established in 1974, Dover Senior Center was the third center opened in York County.  At that time, all area senior centers were supported by Lutheran Social Services.  In 1984, centers became incorporated with the York County Area Agency on Aging.  Heritage was originally located in Dover United Church of Christ.  From 1980-1995, we were housed in St. David’s E.C. Church.

Heritage partnered with Dover Township in 1995 moving to a larger facility in the Township Community Building. It was at this time that we officially became the Heritage Senior Center.

Heritage has continued to grow and evolve, becoming the thriving senior facility it is today.
