Senior Programs

For nearly 40 years, the City of Las Cruces has been committed to serving the needs of its elder citizens. Today, Senior Programs is recognized for its wide range of quality programs and services for adults age 50 and older. Our staff, volunteers and members work together to provide the largest range of programs for seniors in Las Cruces. We serve more than 1,600 individuals a year, have more than 16,000 members and benefit from the skills of more than 250 volunteers. Check out the Senior Programs' annual reports:

Fiscal Year Annual Reports. Annual reports are available by the third quarter of the following year. For example, the 2015/2016 annual report will be available sometime in the last three months of 2017.
