History of the Hereford Senior Center
On May 1, 1979, the Mt. Carmel-Prettyboy Senior Center was opened by the Baltimore County Department of Aging. at the Mt. Carmel United Methodist Church. Money was donated by the Hereford Optimist Club, the Izaak Walton League and by several community members to establish a council treasury. In 1980, a center opened at the West Liberty Church, however, it was later closed and merged with the Mt. Carmel-Prettyboy Senior Center. For 35 years the senior center operated in the Education Building of the Mt. Carmel United Methodist Church, however, the membership outgrew the space and many participants found it difficult to access the second floor without an elevator. A larger space with accessible restrooms and Wi-Fi was found at the second floor of the Hereford Volunteer Fire Department's Summit Manor Banquet Hall. On January 6, 2015, the senior center officially moved to its new location.
The mission of the Hereford Senior Center and the Baltimore County Department of Aging is to strengthen lives by providing services, programs and connections to resources.
