Our History

The Intercultural Senior Center was founded in 2009 by Carolina Padilla with the goal of providing services to elderly immigrants in the community.

At the beginning ISC served mainly Latino seniors, and in 2013 we started welcoming refugee seniors from Sudan, Somalia, Bhutan, Nepal, and Burma (Karen population), as well as native English speakers.

With bilingual English/Spanish staff members, interpreters for the languages of the refugees, and door-to-door transportation by van, we ensure that everyone can participate fully in our programs regardless of language ability, income, or physical mobility.
