Founded in 1956, FiftyForward annually touches the lives of more than 20,000 individuals – senior adults, children and families in Middle Tennessee.

Through seven locations and a variety of programs in Davidson and Williamson counties, FiftyForward provides enrichment opportunities for adults 50 and older to remain engaged in living their lives to the fullest.

Financial support for FiftyForward is diverse, including grants from governments and foundations, the United Way of Metro Nashville, the United Way of Williamson County, special events and campaigns, cash or in-kind contributions from individuals, as well as through the FiftyForward Endowment.

At our locations, members participate in hundreds of educational and wellness programs. We also provide needed assistance to those wanting to stay in their homes through our Living At Home Services, and we offer exceptional volunteer opportunities. Moreover, we have an outstanding performing arts program through the Senior Center for the Arts and  Music for Seniors, and our FiftyForward Travel program conducts trips at home and abroad throughout the year.

Whether you are searching for new activities in your retirement – educational, wellness, or volunteer – or whether you or a loved one needs at-home assistance, you have come to the right place. The caring FiftyForward staff and volunteers are delighted to answer your questions and provide more information about our programs and services.
