    OUR MISSION:

    To empower older adults to live with purpose, independence, and dignity.

    We provide these services free of charge at 26 Sixty & Better Activity Centers and Wellness Programs Sites throughout Tarrant County:

    Nutrition + Socialization + Wellness Programs + Transportation + Fun

    Sixty & Better is a non-profit organization founded in 1967 that provides a wide range of programs and services that enable the young at heart to live life to the fullest. We are the only organization in the nation for those 60+ with a network of 26 Activity Centers.

    PROGRAMS

    • Our Socialization and Nutrition program provides nutritious meals and helps prevent elder isolation. In our latest survey of participants, 49 percent report spending less than $125 per month on groceries and 54 percent report that the meal they receive at our Activity Center is their most important source of nutrition. Additionally, 46 percent live alone, and 69 percent are unmarried, with 44 percent saying their only social contact is at our centers.
    • Health for Me teaches how to take charge of health issues through the Stanford University Chronic Disease Self-Management program. 69 percent of our participants have high blood pressure and 45 percent have high blood sugar or diabetes—72 percent take three or more prescriptions daily.  
    • A Matter of Balance is an award-winning falls prevention program that helps older adults improve their strength and balance and learn ways to reduce falls. After a 2015 review of the program’s success, the National Council on Aging (NCOA) selected S&B as one of only eight organizations in the nation to launch its Aging Mastery Program, which continues to exceed attendance projections.
    • Transportation – Almost 40 percent of our participants do not or cannot drive and each year our transit program provides 36,000+ trips to stay connected.
    • Benefits Enrollment Centers in 12 Activity Centers assist financially-challenged older adults in lowering the cost of prescription drug payments, medical care, food and utilities.
    • Volunteer Opportunities in our Activity Centers and throughout the community help older adults stay connected and give back to the community.

    Volunteers are always needed! If you would like to help, please contact us at 817-413-4949 or visit sixtyandbetter.org.
