Closing Message

Skyway Senior Center_Closing Letter (PNG)Dear Skyway Senior Center Participant and Stakeholder,

 We are deeply saddened to report the Minneapolis Skyway Senior Center will be permanently closing on Friday, March 31, 2017, due to a lack of sustainable funding.  At the end of 2015, UCare was unable to continue its sponsorship of the Skyway Senior Center.  Multiple attempts were made to secure funding throughout 2016 and into 2017 without success. 

 The Minneapolis Skyway Senior Center opened in 2001 and has been privately funded, with in-kind support from the City of Minneapolis, since it opened.  Thank you to the many participants and volunteers who have sustained the Center since its inception.  The Center served as a resource for older adults and to that end, enclosed is a list of senior community resources, including other senior centers. 

Thank you for your participation and support of the Skyway Senior Center. 




Open since 2001 the Skyway Senior Center provides a beautiful 2,000 square foot gathering place for seniors and friends on the Minneapolis downtown skyway on LaSalle between 9th and 10th streets in the Target store building.

Check out the contemporary senior center in the heart of downtown Minneapolis. This attractive center provides a safe, accessible, and friendly place for people age 50 and over to socialize, take a class, exercise, connect to community resources, use a computer, read, relax, and chat with others over a cup of coffee.
