Welcome to the Lew Martin Senior Center.  Our mission is to provide a welcoming, inclusive environment where people can enjoy warm friendships, healthy activities, joyful experiences, and meaningful engagement as they age.

Funding for the Lew Martin Senior Center has several different levels. The City of Superior supports the general operation of the center (i.e.. staff salaries, paper products, cleaning supplies, etc.). Renters support the mechanical operation of the center (heating, cooling, water, electricity). Programming at the center is all provided by the user of the facilities through fees.  All fees are divided between the Lew Martin Senior Center, the program the funds are collected from, and any other group that comes in to teach/entertain the members/non-members of the center. The fees collected by the Lew Martin Senior Center are used to create and run other programs for those 55+.

For more information about the Lew Martin Senior Center, its programs and activities please call 715-394-3644 or email the manager at awright@northwest-csa.org.
