Services for the Aged

Duplin County Services for the Aged began operating as a County Department in July, 1974, and the Nutrition Program began in September, 1975.  These two programs consolidated into one department in January, 1979.  In May, 2007, Duplin County Services for the Aged and Duplin County Public Transportation were consolidated into one department. 

The primary objective of the agency is to serve as an advocate for persons sixty years of age and older to achieve a better quality of life.

The Senior Center serves as a community focal point, on Aging for programs and activities that are designed to meet the mental, emotional, social and physical needs for older adults, and enhance their dignity, support their independence and encourage their involvement in and with the community.

The Senior Center operates four congregate nutrition sites within the county in the following locations:
