Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino recently donated $5,000 to the Area Agency for Aging for its Mosaic Center Elder Refugee Program. This donation is to help the program move to a larger center.

 

“The Mosaic Center is an incredible program that gives back to the community in ways that are especially helpful to our area’s seniors. The Center provides them with the resources necessary to connect with others and help them make tangible progress within their own lives,” said Robert Livingston, regional vice president and general manager for Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino. “Being able to donate to an organization such as the Area Agency for Aging is a tangible way for Harrah’s employees to show their appreciation and support a worthy cause.”

 

The Refugee Program was developed to provide services and support to elder refugees 60 years or older living in Maricopa County. These services include critical needs case management, housing and home management assistance, referrals for aging services, and interpretation and translation services, to name a few. The Center also provides various activities and meals in addition to transportation to those who need it.

 

The Native American Seniors is also housed at The Mosaic Center, a program that enables Native Americans over 60 to connect with one another. Elders from 12 different tribes take part in this program.

 

The Mosaic Center is open four days a week and is located at 1430 E. Indian School Rd., #110, Phoenix, AZ 85014. The Native American Seniors program meets Mondays and Tuesday and the Refugee Program takes place on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Celebrating more than 20 years in Maricopa, Arizona, Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino is Arizona’s first and only tribal casino to have an international management partner. Offering the largest selection of the latest reel and video slots in a range of denominations, Harrah’s Ak-Chin features slot machines, video poker, video Keno as well as popular statewide progressives and live-action poker and Black Jack.
