SASCC, pronounced "sassy," was formed for the purpose of serving and caring for the needs of Saratoga area seniors. Our programs reflect our core values, which are Friendship, Community, Learning, and Service.
The Senior Center is located at Allendale and Fruitvale in Saratoga, adjacent to the Saratoga Community Center. We provide over 40 activities and programs, as well as other services.
The Adult Care Center (ACC) is a place for less independent elders to enjoy physical, mental, and social stimulation, a nutritious lunch, and the special care they need. Services are provided on a sliding scale. The programs help delay or prevent institutionalization of elders and provide much needed respite for their families and caregivers.

The Saratoga Area Senior Coordinating Council (SASCC), a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, was founded in 1981 by a group of concerned older adults who lived within the Saratoga Community. SASCC's mission to serve the many different needs of local seniors resulted in the establishment of the Saratoga Senior Center and the Saratoga Adult Care Center.
Most of our funding comes from membership dues, class fees, adult care fees, fundraisers, private
donations, gifts, and bequests, coming from foundation and government grants.
In addition, a restricted endowment fund gifted to SASCC a number of years ago has enabled the organization to operate while continuing to provide exceptional services to the elders of the Saratoga area.
The buildings, utilities, and maintenance are donated by the city. Much of our staff are
