About Us

Who Are We?

The Seymour Friends is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the high quality of activities and programs for seniors offered at the Center.

What are the Center's Sources of Funding?

The Orange County Department on Aging provides the professional staff to manage, operate, and maintain the facility.

Support also comes from the Towns of Chapel Hill and Carrboro, but that support has been greatly reduced due to budget constraints.

The remainder of our revenue is derived from individual contributions, annual yard sales, fund-raising drives, etc.
