55 Kip Center has operated since it opened in 1985 at a local parish house in partnership with the Interfaith Council of Rutherford. The Center provided programs, activities, and meals for older adults including Saturdays. In April 1995, the Center moved to 55 Kip Avenue and now operates a comprehensive and full time program promoting the physical, emotional, educational, and spiritual well-being of older adults.

The staff are warm and welcoming!
Rating: 5 stars July 5, 2016 There is no doubt that the Kip Center will be a place of happiness for all who enter through its doors. It has something for everyone - and the joy is felt by all who work, volunteer, play, eat, learn, exercise and have fun here!
Rating: 5 stars June 14, 2016 I briefly worked at Kip teaching computers years ago. Having been in the center many times I can assure you that Kip Senior Center has a great vibe - it is alive with people who are interested in learning and connecting and doing. What a social networking opportunity for someone who is retired or working but not meeting new people... The programs there are always evolving with the times and the smiles you see and the energy you feel when you go inside are proof positive that what they are doing there is making the seniors very happy... Highly recommend...

55 Kip Center has established itself as a community focal point where older adults can come together for services and activities that reflect their diverse needs and interests, enhance their dignity, support their independence and encourage their involvement in and with the center and the community.
