Jacksonville Elderly Activities Program

The Jacksonville Senior Wellness & Activity Center (JSWAC) had its beginnings in 1974 as the Jacksonville elderly activities program in a single wide mobile home on Martin Street, near to where the Splash Zone stands today.


Additional mobile homes were later added to the center. A $400,000 community development block grant and low interest bonds helped fund the construction of the current Jacksonville senior center which opened in May 1984. The property donated by the Bart Gray family of Jacksonville was the site of the former Graco theatre which they had owned.


Today the center provides a place for senior adults to socialize, have a hot meal and stay active. It provides activities and services for any person of age 60 and over. A person in that age group may bring his or her spouse who may be under 60 years of age.


We focus on making the maximum positive effort for our community. Our members and volunteers provide the momentum that helps us affect change. Using data driven models, we provide solutions that make a long lasting difference.


We have a contract for services with CareLink (Central Arkansas Area Agency on Aging), which includes money from Title III, Title XX (both Federal and State money), cigarette tax, soda pop tax and other taxes.

Some of the other sponsors of Jacksonville Senior Wellness & Activity Center are: 


  • ElderChoices (a Medicaid program) -- Fee for services reimbursement.
  • City of Jacksonville
  • City of Sherwood
  • Heart of Arkansas United Way, Inc.
  • Other organizations, civic groups and individuals

Your contributions will be gratefully accepted to help us maintain our current level of service to seniors.
