The Portage Senior Center was the first center in the State of Michigan to earn the National Senior Center Accreditation from the National Council on Aging (NCOA). In 2021, the center successfully completed its fifth accreditation application. Accreditation means the Portage Zhang Senior Center meets the highest standards of excellence by ensuring there are smooth and efficient operating procedures and policies in place. In addition, it demonstrates a connection to the community and measures progress against a national baseline.
