The Burke/West Springfield Senior Center was created to provide a variety of programs, activities, and services to older adults in this community.
Although there is no dedicated building for the center, a public-private partnership among the residents, businesses, places of worship, and the Fairfax County government exists and continues to grow.
Center activities are located at local community and other senior centers, at churches, police stations, and libraries. Specific locations are outlined in the class schedule.
Fairfax County and community representatives signed the by-laws for the administration of the Center in April of 2011. Participation in and the variety of the center's activities has steadily been growing and expanding.
The Advisory Council is governed by a set of bylaws that were estabished between the serviced public and Fairfax County government. The Council consists of five members plus a representative from NCS. It meets at least quarterly.
