James Moran Community Center The multipurpose Community Center continues to provide a space where seniors can interact with one another, socialize, host events, and exercise. In 2017, Operation Pathways, a resident services program, provided activities for seniors via its “Pathway to Aging in Place.” This programming provides the senior residents of Winter Hill the necessary tools to ensure economic security, prevent illness, improve health, understand their legal rights, and live in a safe environment. Residents engage in one-on-one, small group, and large group activities and events, all of which engage and hone their social skills. Other Operation Pathways initiatives for FCHC residents included: community-centric celebrations and activities, computer and technology classes, wellness workshops, exercise and yoga, flu shot clinics, and financial workshops. Additionally, the City of Falls Church and DHHS perform outreach in this location once a month, updating residents on new services, distributing educational materials and transportation coupons for taxis. The Community Center remains a refuge for residents of the city who suffer from power outages and high temperatures, as it can be utilized as an emergency cooling center. These are just a few examples of how FCHC and Falls Church work together to provide a service enriched environment for our residents as well as to residents of Falls Church who access the space for meetings and gatherings.
