The Department strives diligently to provide avenues which promote independent living. This goal is achieved through its activities, senior van service and Mercer County Outreach service.
The goal of the Ewing Township Senior Citizen Department is to provide for the health, education, recreation, general well being, and special needs of its Senior Citizen population, while enhancing the quality of life for them.
Through the Senior Division, mature residents are also offered guidance and assistance when organizing potential Senior Citizen Clubs.

(www.clcewing.org) “Our mission is to teach computer skills to mature adults and, from time to time, others who qualify because of their economic, physical, or social characteristics, in an understandable, enjoyable and friendly way. Participation in our programs gives older adults an opportunity to learn the skills that enable them to communicate their knowledge, wisdom, and experience to society and offers them a means to make new friends through online communications that open a new world of intellectual and social interaction. Located in the Ewing Township Senior and Community Center, we operate a state-of-the-art learning laboratory, with eight individual computers and 22 inch monitors that allow our students to have hands on experience during our the lessons.
Classes are given on PCs, and we also offer training in the use of iPads - the new tablets from Apple.
Our classes are taught by an enthusiastic group of senior volunteers who understand the challenge of learning a new skill and will teach the classes at a pace that eanbles all our students to "learn by doing."
Each month, we hold a workshop that consists of a "Question and Answer" session on any computer issues followed by a talk on a current computer topic.”
