Bethel senior center moving out
Bethel’s Eddie Hoffman Senior Center is moving out of its home. As reported by Bethel radio station KYUK, Bethel’s tribe ONC runs the senior program and can’t afford to keep it in the building that’s housed it for years.
The senior program provides over 80 meals a day, many delivered to homebound clients, and up to 25 to 30 seniors visit each day. Bus service runs members to the post office, grocery shopping and on other errands.
The program is expected to be moved out of its building by the end of September. While a new home has not been secured, city leaders are optimistic one will be found with little to no interruption in services.
Location ideas have included the Lulu Herron Center, which provides senior housing, or at the Lions Club.
