Senior Citizens Services (SCS) began providing services to older adults in 1970 with Ms. Mary Abbie Berg as the first Executive Director. In 1990, the nonprofit organization moved to its current location, formerly the Ahavas Chesed Synagogue. It became the Mary Abbie Berg Senior Center, providing older adults with meaningful activities and resources. Through many generous donations, SCS, was able to add 15,000 square foot expansion dedicated the Herbert and Fanny Meisler Health and Fitness Building. This addition includes a fitness center, gymnasium and aerobics room. The enlarged facility became the Via Health, Fitness and Enrichment Center located on the Arlene F. Mitchell Campus.

A history of excellence has proven Via Health, Fitness and Enrichment Center to have a far reaching impact on mature adults throughout the Mobile Community. Continual effort to provide exemplary services and programs assure the Via Health, Fitness and Enrichment Center will fulfill its mission for many years to come!
