Touching Lives

For over 75 years!

 The Don Bosco Senior Center helps seniors age 60 and over, and adults with disabilities, maintain independent living by providing meals, transportation, fellowship, and activities that promote health, education, and recreation. Based on Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) guidelines, the Don Bosco Senior Center is the largest, most comprehensive senior center in the Greater Kansas City area.  Through a Meals on Wheels program, Don Bosco delivers an average of 400 hot, nutritious meals each day and serves an additional 180 hot meals onsite at the Senior Center each day. 

The Don Bosco Center ESL School provides free English classes to adult immigrants and refugees from over 75 countries and vastly differing life situations.  Our English as a Second Language Program, through a valuable partnership with the Independence School District, has grown to be the largest in Kansas City region.  Through the utilization of life skills-based curriculum, our program offers eight-levels of English instruction, Workforce Development classes, technology classes, Citizenship Test Preparation, and High School Equivalency classes.
