This booklet contains statements made before the Senate's Special Committee on Aging in October, 1977. While all statements are devoted to the issue of senior centers, this issue is presented as just one of the many issues to be evaluated in regard to an extension of the Older Americans Act. The statements are given by a number of senators and by professionals involved in the service, operational and funding aspects of senior centers. Discussed are: (1) services delivered by senior centers; (2) financial and administrative needs of senior centers for their continued operation; (3) allocation of monies by Federal and State governments; and (4) relationship between area agencies and senior centers. Appendices consist of background information on senior centers, information on selected senior centers, and materials submitted to the Senate Committee by individuals and organizations involved with senior centers.
