About Us

The Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center is unique because it is both a Senior Center and social service agency. Our Senior Center offers lunches, games, Zumba, yoga, line dancing, traveling, art, music and writing. If you need a ride to the Neighborhood Center, shopping or to a medical appointment, we provide free transportation with handicap-accessible busses.

Each month, more than 100 volunteers donate their time to distribute food, clothing, diapers, baby wipes, personal hygiene items and pet food to our neighbors who are homeless or residing in Mystic, Stonington, North Stonington and Westerly. Each week we distribute weekend meals to children through our Weekender Backpack Program. This incudes a protein, cereal, fruit, milk, bread, vegetables and snacks. In the summer, we collaborate with the Stonington Library, who offer their summer program to children in conjunction with the Backpack Program.

Food is always needed and we welcome individuals and organizations to donate. Our Food Pantry is open from 8:30 to 4:00, M - F. Staff is available to help with SNAP benefits, oil and utilities assistance, rental assistance and homelessness. A registered nurse offers a foot clinic each week and wellness clinic each month. In August, we will offer a Diabetes Clinic. Check out the website for new programs!
