The Redmond Senior Center was launched by volunteers over 70 years ago (1949) when the population in Redmond was less than 3000 residents. It continues to operate as the “hub” and primary resource in the greater Redmond area focused entirely on seniors. The community-based Redmond Senior Center is funded entirely by individuals, area businesses and groups, and philanthropic organizations. Your contribution — either annually/yearly or monthly—is an investment in the future of community engagement.
Oregon is recognized by Forbes as the 2nd best state to move to and Redmond the 2nd best city in Oregon for retirees; hence, the signal for accelerated growth in the number of seniors moving to the Redmond area. Currently, over 23 percent of Redmond’s population is 50 or older according to the last census. By 2025, the number of seniors in Redmond and adjoining areas (Eagle Crest, Crooked River Ranch, Terrebonne, Powell Butte, Alfalfa, etc.) is expected to double.
