Narrative

The Winchester Seniors Association (WSA) is a not-for-profit volunteer corporation of, by, and for people 55 years and older. We improve the quality of senior's lives through participation in and enjoyment of a wide range of stimulating social, educational, and recreational activities.

We operate the private not-for-profit Jenks Center for the benefit of the citizens, community organizations, and the Town of Winchester.

Senior citizens living in Winchester and surrounding communiities may borrow equipment indefinitely. We have walkers, canes, wheelchairs and commodes. Depend on donations of used equipment; some equipment may be out on loan, so availability varies. Users must pick up equipment.
