At GEDCO, we believe that Baltimore’s older adults, regardless of their incomes, should have access to the highest quality of housing with supportive services. We accomplish this through our housing communities of Gallagher Mansion and Stadium Place, and additionally through our activity centers of Harford Senior Center and the Senior Network of North Baltimore. We also offer housing and support for people with disabilities over the age of 55 at Epiphany House.
All individuals should be able to lead meaningful and engaged lives. Our goal is to enable older adults in Baltimore City to be able to age in community with dignity and lead meaningful lives.
Why Older Adults and Seniors?
Of the many individuals overlooked and without a voice, older adults are the largest in our community, and as Baby Boomers age, this population is becoming larger. There are many struggles which older adults can encounter including abuse, dementia, physical disabilities, chronic diseases, diversity/minority issues, income insecurity, and more.
What Can GEDCO Do?
Through housing with supportive services, GEDCO is able to create stable, engaging and meaningful homes for older adults and seniors. Our full time staff and supportive services include Activity Coordinators, Service Coordinators, transporation, Eating Together lunch programs, fresh and discounted/free produce, and so much more. By growing our housing communities, we hope to be able to reach a larger population of individuals who are truly in need.

GEDCO’s Harford Senior Center serves over 450 adults by providing activities and programs which allow members to remain active and independent. Something is always happening at the center- from education and health seminars, to line dancing, to planned trips- and we are always having fun! As the operator of the Center, GEDCO seeks to increase the quality of life for older adults, while also promoting self-reliance, dignity, and hope within the surrounding community.
Upon recognizing GEDCO’s commitment to and success with older adults, the Baltimore City Health Department Office on Aging and CARE Services asked GEDCO to begin operating the Harford Senior Center in July of 2012.
There is a regular schedule of activities such as aerobics/fitness, arts & crafts, bingo, bible study, computer classes, jewelry making, line dancing, monthly trips, and more.

The diversity of our center is evident in the activities we provide-there is something for everyone! Programs are enhanced by our partnerships with other organizations.
SNNB has been a part of the north Baltimore community for many years, and works in partnership with Govans Presbyterian Church. The center engages more than 500 older adults annually.
There’s always time to be social with us at the center during bingo, planned trips, knitting class, language classes, computer classes, Bible study, book club, Reminiscing Group, Bridge Club, arts and crafts, wine and cheese parties, Friday lunches, movie times, ice cream socials, and games and trivia!
Keeping the body healthy is important to us here at the center, and we do so through chair exercises, aerobics, line dancing, tai chi, and zumba classes, as well as through flu shots, blood pressure testing and vision/hearing screenings.
Referrals to outside resources always are available at the network, especially for legal services, housing, in-home care, food pantries, financial assistance, eldercare locators, health agencies, and transportation. We provide these referrals through our continued relationships with University of Maryland pharmacists, the Good Samaritan Hospital, an I&A Specialist, the Maryland Energy Assistance Program, Medicare and Medicaid programs, nutrition assistance, and more.
