The LOEL Center & Gardens is a private non-profit charitable organization that is open to the public and strives to provide services and programs that are beneficial and obtainable by all seniors in our community and surrounding areas.
The LOEL mission statement reads, “The LOEL Center & Gardens empowers the Greater Lodi Area senior adults to live independent, meaningful, healthy, and dignified lives through social interaction, advocacy, leadership, and innovation with efficient and effective policies, programs, and services. It is the goal of the LOEL Foundation Board and staff to significantly enhance and expand the services that the LOEL Center & Gardens provides.
The LOEL Center & Gardens is growing rapidly. The next few years will bring many exciting new developments for the 32-year-old LOEL Center & Gardens. Additions may include plans for expansion/remodeling of the center, more senior-affordable housing, and a variety of new programs and services. In return, we will be able to reach more seniors. So stay on the look out!
In order to support the expansion of the building, programs, and services, fundraising continues to be a focus of the center’s staff. Fundraising dinners and community events are an essential part of how LOEL raises funds. So, make sure to check out our event page for upcoming fundraisers. The LOEL Center & Gardens also offers rental opportunities of the center and its gardens for weddings and other celebratory events, producing income that in turn will benefit Lodi’s senior community with expansion of the center, programs, services, and increasing social events.
If you or a loved one have not been involved with the LOEL Center & Gardens, the LOEL Foundation Board and staff welcome you to become part of the LOEL Family. The LOEL Center & Gardens has a place for you.
Serving as president of the LOEL Foundation is a wonderful position. It’s like having 250+ grandparents! Together, with help from our staff, board members, and the community, we will continue to move LOEL Center & Gardens forward.
