Welcome to the Star Harbor family!

Star Harbor Senior Community Center provides programs and services for older adults living in SouthWest Philadelphia. The center welcomes anyone 55 years and older and there is no charge to become a member. Star Harbor is a warm, inviting community that will quickly become your home away from home. We invite you to join us and spend the day pursuing activities that are of interest to you. There are activities for everyone: drama, Gospel Choir, dance classes, photography and iPad, to name just a few. The center’s social service coordinator is also available to be a resource for members who may need information about benefits and entitlements, assistance arranging transportation and access to other services.
