Spectrum Generations spans four decades of helping our older and disabled neighbors by providing them with the tools and resources they need to live happy, healthy and independent lives.  It is our mission to promote life-long learning, health, wellness, nutrition, community engagement and social well-being of all older and disabled adults.

Spectrum Generations’ Cohen Community Center, located on 22 Town Farm Road in Hallowell, provides the community with a variety of different programs, services, activities and special events that support our home-bound older and disabled neighbors. You are invited to visit the Cohen Center Monday-Friday (open from 8-4) to explore all of the different activities and services.  Lunch is served daily from 11:00-12:30 and is open to the public.
