The Intercultural Senior Center is GROWING! In fact, we’ve grown so much we’re finishing renovations on our new, permanent home at 5545 Center Street and we hope to move in sometime after the first of the year.

“We’re so excited to prepare this beautiful, new space for our diverse seniors to take classes, dance, make friends, make art, and flourish,” said ISC Executive Director Carolina Padilla. She noted that ISC has outgrown its current rented site in South Omaha, but thanks to a $6.2 million Capital Campaign, the new facility will offer the perfect home for ISC’s many programs. The building is 22,000 square feet, all on one level, with space for drive-in access for senior boarding/deboarding, adequate parking, and green areas on the property. Support for the Capital Campaign has, thus far, included major gifts from the Weitz Family Foundation, the Sherwood Foundation, the Lozier Foundation, the William and Ruth Scott Foundation, the Gary and Mary West Foundation and other anonymous donors, as well as a challenge grant from the Peter Kiewit Foundation. ISC has engaged Project Control as the project manager, DLR Group as the architects, and Roloff Building Group as the general contractor. Financing for the project is provided by Security National Bank.
