About Friends of the Nantucket Seniors

Nantucket Center for Elder Affairs, Inc. (NCEA)
“Friends of Nantucket Seniors”
Supporting The Saltmarsh Senior Center and Older Adults in Our Community

The Nantucket Center for Elder Affairs, Inc., the official name of Friends of Nantucket Seniors, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

NCEA owns the building known as the Saltmarsh Center and is responsible for repairs, renovations and upkeep of the building and gardens. The building is leased rent free by NCEA to the Town of Nantucket, for the Town to operate senior programs onsite five days a week. The Town’s budget is limited, so NCEA also uses your contributions to support, supplement and enhance Town senior center programming and to provide special experiences for seniors by underwriting the cost of senior tickets to Cape Cod Symphony Holiday Concert and Nantucket Theatre productions. NCEA also helps to organize and sponsor programs of special interest such as the Memory Café, Celtic Sojourn, events, speakers and activities in celebration of 2020 – Year of Nantucket Senior, and much more.

“I am deeply grateful for Saltmarsh and the dedicated staff who work hard to ensure their elders are having the best experiences. We are fortunate to have an organization that so generously enriches the lives of our island seniors.”
