About Us

For over 51 years, Southeast Seattle Senior Center, fondly known as SESSC,  located in the Rainier Valley, has been a neighborhood activity center that addresses the social, educational, and health needs of aging adults and the community at large.  Over 600 seniors living on Beacon Hill, Skyway, Rainier Valley, Renton and the Central Area are active participants at our Center.  Our activities are designed to include all physical stages of aging such as exercise programs, computer classes, weaving and quilting classes, card clubs, line dance classes, Spanish classes, recreational trips, and much more.

The B&B Diner, SESSC’s in-house eatery, serves hot meals five days a week, including special meals like our monthly Birthday Lunches. The diversity of zip code 98118 is reflected in our membership and in classes geared to better serve our colorful community.  SESSC is a member of the Rainier Chamber of Commerce and the Seattle Rainier Lions Club.

Our Mission

The mission of Southeast Seattle Senior Center is to promote the emotional, social and physical well being of aging adults.  We provide a variety of programs and activities designed to enhance the lives of seniors in our Community.

History

Southeast Seattle Senior Center, a non-profit senior center formerly known as Lee House, was founded in 1961. The senior center has been housed at our current location on Holly Street since 1986.

From the beginning, Lee House programs emphasized a multi-service approach to seniors living independently. This approach continues today, offering a good variety of programs and services to meet the needs of the community and hosting fun and meaningful events where the community can meet!

Today, Southeast Seattle Senior center serves over 1200 seniors annually. We offer a variety of programs and services at affordable cost to seniors young and old. Volunteers are the heart of our center – if you are looking for a way to fulfill your day, we have a place for you.

Visit our senior center to experience the rich diversity of the Rainier Valley. We welcome you at the Southeast Seattle Senior Center where active older adults gather for Fun, Fitness, Friendship, and Learning.
