About South Iredell Senior Center 

A Senior Center of Excellence

Founded by the Iredell Council on Aging in 1995, the South Iredell Senior Center's (SISC) mission is to help seniors continue to grow, promoting physical, emotional, and economic well-being for successful aging.

We are a 501(c)(3) organization and a  Senior Center of Excellence, certified by the NC Department of Health and Human Services, Aging and Adult Services Division. South Iredell Senior Center is located at 202 N. Church Street in the lower level of the Charles Mack Citizen Center in Downtown Mooresville, NC.

The philosophy of South Iredell Senior Center is based on these premises: that aging is a normal developmental process; that human beings need peers with whom they can interact and who are available as a source of encouragement and support and that older adults have the right to a voice in determining matters in which they have a valid interest.

A Place For active aging

An active lifestyle is considered one of the most important elements for health and wellness. Studies have shown that a person who remains active and involved with others experiences less illness, a longer life, and greater overall life satisfaction during their later years. The facilities, programs, and services at the South Iredell Senior Center are designed to meet the changing needs of older adults and assist them in remaining an active, vital part of the community

Who Do We Serve?

  • There is no membership fee to join SISC for Iredell County residents aged 60+.
  • Non-County residents aged 60+ may join SISC by paying a $25 fee annually.
  • Some programs offered by the center do require an additional fee and that will be noted in the description of the program.
  • SISC has a scholarship program for low-income Iredell County senior residents aged 60+.

Governing Bodies

The South Iredell Senior Center Advisory Council works with the senior center manager, assisting with program and service ideas, identifying Senior Center needs, evaluating existing programs, fund-raising, and other aspects of Senior Center operations. The Advisory Council makes recommendations on funding and operations requests that go before the COA Board of Directors. The COA Board of Directors is responsible for approving Senior Center budgets, spending, and other operational matters.


Funding comes from the Iredell Council on Aging, the Home and Community Care Block Grant (Federal Older Americans Act monies), the State of North Carolina, Town of Mooresville, Iredell County, fundraising efforts, and private tax-deductible gifts and donations. We welcome and appreciate gifts and donations of support.
