Senior Champion Program
The Senior Champion Program (SCP) is a free adult day care program for seniors in the greater Williamsburg area.
The program provides opportunities for eligible seniors to socialize, to benefit from memory stimulation through music therapy, to participate in research-based activities, and to enjoy enriching craft projects. This program also offers the family caregiver much needed respite from their demanding responsibilities.
Two adult day programs are available:
- Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at New Zion Baptist Church, 3991 Longhill Road, Williamsburg
- Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church, 7479 Richmond Road, Williamsburg
Both sites provide a free, nutritious lunch by Divine Lunches.

The Senior Champion Program at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church on Wednesdays is partnered with Family Focus to participate in intergenerational activities with senior adults. Family Focus, through the Virginia Cooperative Extension, offers a preschool program, parent-child interactive learning groups, parent education classes, and support groups.
Research has demonstrated the benefits for both the children and older adults who interact with one another. Intergenerational relationships can:
- Learn new skills
- Give a sense of purpose
- Improve self-worth
- Alleviate a child’s fears of older adults
- Invigorate and energize older adults
- Improve health in elderly and slow pace of dementia
- Reduce isolation and depression in older adults
- Keep family history and stories vibrant
