Center for Senior Enrichment celebrates one year of virtual programming

When the COVID-19 pandemic forced all in-person events to be canceled, the Center for Senior Enrichment, sponsored by Jewish Family and Children’s Service, found a new way to bring its programs to the community.

And now, one year later, the virtual CSE is reaching thousands of older adults and will continue to offer online activities.
