Golden Slipper Gems

We inspire older adults to live independently, actively and engaged with their communities.

Golden Slipper Gems is an integral part of my life. The joy of observing and interacting with engaged older adults as they learn as a community is exhilarating. Without interacting with others, older adults may become isolated and depressed. Through the programs and educational opportunities we provide, they can thrive. I am proud to  volunteer for such a worthwhile organization.”

Our Vision

Golden Slipper Gems envisions a society where every older adult is honored as a valuable and treasured asset.


We were founded in 1995 as a traditional senior center located in Wynnefield Heights and although we no longer serve that location, today our reach has become far more expansive serving older adults at eight locations across the Greater Philadelphia Region. In 2018, we changed our name to Golden Slipper Gems to better reflect our growing organization.

Enrichment for Older Adults

We offer a range of programs from recreational activities such as games and entertainment to courses that explore popular topics in depth and introduce older adults to new areas of learning and experience. Our programs and services are tailored to each of our locations to meet the specific needs of that community.


Main Line

At Golden Slipper Gems on the Main Line, located at Adath Israel Synagogue in Merion, participants enjoy a robust lifelong learning program and cultural trips that naturally inspire socialization.
