The Denver Harbor Senior Citizens Center was founded in 1980 through the support of the Area Agency on Aging to provide nutritious meals to citizens 60 years and over. Today, the center serves a healthy breakfast to 70+ seniors through funding from the United Way of the Texas Gulf Coast. By subcontracting with Neighborhood Centers Inc., the center is able to serve a hot nutritious lunch to 80+ seniors. Transportation to and from the center is provided to those who live within a 2 1/2 mile radius of the center.

What started in 1980 as a place where seniors could get a nutritious meal has turned into a lifeline of activity for elderly Houston residents. Daily recreational activities include dominos and other board games, arts and crafts and socialization. From monthly birthday celebrations to out-of-town trips, the senior citizens center is referred to as El Centro Alegre, the Happy Center.
