Humboldt Senior Resource Center is excited to be expanding its services in Fortuna. “This is an exciting time both for HSRC and for seniors living in the Eel River Valley,” said Executive Director Joyce Hayes.
The new Gene Lucas Community Center will house a new HSRC Senior Dining Center. On the same McLean campus on Newburg Road, construction of the Humboldt Senior Resource Center’s new 16,000-square-foot facility that will house Adult Day Health Services and Redwood Coast PACE is well under way.
The expanded HSRC presence in Fortuna means that senior diners will be able to enjoy ad brand new, and larger, dining hall, and program participants from the Eel River Valley will no longer have to travel to Eureka for adult day health and PACE Center services.
Funding for the project comes from the McLean Foundation. “We are very excited that HSRC will be on the McLean campus,” said Foundation President Dennis Scott. “It will be a great expansion of services for the Eel River Valley community to have a HSRC Adult Day Health Center back in Fortuna, plus the addition of the new Redwood Coast PACE center and clinic.”
The new Senior Dining Center is anticipated to open this autumn. Construction of the new Fortuna Adult Day Health and Redwood Coast PACE Center is expected to be completed by December.
