NAM’s Fifty Plus Senior Center offers a comprehensive array of services to seniors in northwest Houston. From an exciting calendar filled with social gatherings, creative activities, physical fitness, entertainment, and trips into the city and surrounding area, it’s easy to see that seniors at Fifty Plus are anything but retiring!
Every month, the program offers an exciting calendar of activities to choose from. There are cultural trips to the theater or museums; educational classes on money management, nutrition and safe driving; physical activities like yoga or line dancing; and games ranging from Mah Jongg to Wii bowling.
Three days a week, seniors can also gather at NAM’s 60+ Cafe for a hot, nutritious lunch – free of charge. For more details on the Cafe, see below.
Last year Fifty Plus served 267 seniors for a total of 7,597 activities. The 60+ Cafe served 4,706 meals and provided 1,469 rides to seniors who needed a way to get there.
In addition to enjoying the many activities, Fifty Plus members can choose to contribute their time and expertise to NAM. Retirees come with skills in technology, business, creative arts, administration and so much more. NAM gives seniors an opportunity to use their experience through volunteer positions as diverse as their background.

From a grateful senior...
"About 5 years ago my family decided I should come from New Orleans to Texas and live with them. When I arrived in Houston, my daughter said, 'You are going to NAM two or three times a week.' Naturally, I balked—I am not going among strangers! Well, they talked me into it, and I went.
"Now I look forward to every day I attend! I've made so many friends with people from all over the U.S. (and even some outside the U.S.). We talk, laugh and exchange our life stories. We have a marvelous time. We get to go on day trips to all kinds of fascinating places, and we get to exercise, play bingo, paint, craft, etc., etc., etc.
"NAM is our salvation—it saves our sanity—it keeps us from missing our 'old lives' and gives us a whole new outlook!"
