At South Eighth and West Washington streets, the aging community continues traditions and heritage.

“I love the music. I love to dance,” Ramona Rosado said.

Members represent Nicaragua, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico and other countries.

The senior center is attached to the United Community Center. It’s a gathering place.

“Where they see people like them, talk to them hear the music they’re familiar with,” senior center leader Al Castro said.

He oversees the center and said as the community gets older, there can sometimes be isolation.

Along with music, food and socialization, the seniors can even get their hair done at Reina’s Salon and Tazo.

There’s a lot to see at the center.

“We have the only Latino senior center, the only Latino adult day center and the only Latino memory care center,” Castro said.

They have a bilingual staff and partner with the 16th Street Clinic to provide preventative care.

They do it all for free.

“Everybody got problems, you know, sick and we are for a little bit, we feel fine,” Rosado said.

The senior center is also looking for volunteers.
