The mission of the Bulverde Senior Center is to facilitate active aging and enhance the quality of life for older adults in our communities.

Notes from the nonprofit

The Bulverde Senior Center provides older adults with a place to socialize and stay active, both physically and mentally. We encourage independent living and battle isolation and depression through three program areas: Health & Fitness, Social Activity and Community Service & Outreach. By offering transportation to and from the center five days a week and for day- and lunch trips, we are able to include seniors who may not otherwise leave their home.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We are a non-profit organization with a mission to enhance the lives of seniors. Our goal is to facilitate dignified aging in place – to keep seniors out of hospitals and nursing homes. The center provide nutritious meals, opportunities for socialization, fitness, education and transportation. We are also a referral center for those in need of other types of assistance. Some examples include rides to doctor appointments, housing assistance and installation of grab bars or wheelchair ramps in a client's home. Our volunteers deliver meals to homebound seniors and serve nutritious meals at our center. For some of our homebound seniors, the volunteer delivering their meal and providing a well check may the only person they see that day or that week. Over a third of those checking in at the center are seniors coming in to exercise. Others are taking classes, socializing and participating in crafts or games.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We enhance our seniors' quality of life and facilitate dignified aging-in-place. Outreach services provide meals for many seniors that are not receiving nutritional meals. For the homebound, delivered meals provide a daily check-in on their well-being. The center is a referral resource to aid them in remaining independent, healthy and self-sufficient. Our health and fitness programs help seniors remain healthy, fit, active and self-sufficient and our social activity program provides educational, social and stimulating activities that benefit the quality of life and guard against isolation and depression.

Our programs directly supports our mission; to facilitate active aging and enhance the quality of life for older adults in our communities.

We work with local EMS, police, churches, health care/outreach providers and local interagency organizations to identify vulnerable seniors and provide basic services. We continually look for partnerships that can help enhance the quality of life for seniors.

We participated in a C-CAT testing during to 2013 and 2016 and have made improvements based on the results found in this study.

We have accomplished a construction project that doubled the size of our facility and look forward to what the new area will allow us to offer. Our next goal was to establish a transportation option for Bulverde Spring Branch Area. We purchased a 15 passenger wheel chair lift bus which is used to transport members five days a week as well as take members on day trips. Our current goals are to expand the transportation program and expand all our programs to suit needs and interests of the community.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
