Pender Adult Services, Inc.

Pender Adult Services, Inc. is a Non-Profit Organization Serving Pender County, North Carolina. We are committed to providing our community a safe, stable environment in which individuals can maintain their independence, good health practices, and a healthy sense of self-esteem.

Pender Adult Services offers a broad range of group and individual activities and services that respond to the needs and interests of older adults, families and caregivers in our communities. Programming includes activities, classes, services and information assistance to promote healthy and fulfilling lives. We offer two convenient locations: Heritage Place in Burgaw, NC, and Topsail Senior Center in Hampstead, NC.


Our clients are generally those included in the most vulnerable population. The following changes are to ensure the safety of all, regardless of age or current health status. We are working within Reopening protocols with smaller groups to be as safe as possible. Check back for updates, as changes will be reviewed as information and conditions change. We will re-evaluate as information is received. The "safer at home" guidelines still apply for anyone in the "high risk" category.

Our Services & Programs

We are all fortunate to live in a time where our life expectancy is increasing. People arriving at what was once called "retirement" are still active, healthy, and anxious to participate in community activities.

Our Commitment

Our core objective at Pender Adult Services is to insure that our community's mature adults are able to live a life that is not just longer, but also one that remains rich in satisfaction, stimulation and socialization.

Pender Adult Services is an agency designed to provide specific solutions for each special client. We make available not only basic life support services, but also services that increase life's pleasure and sense of well-being.
