New MYCAP Senior Center to Open in Summer 2024

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – At a ceremony Tuesday morning, Anthony Trevena, Western Reserve Port Authority executive director, presented keys to the building at 64 Ridge Ave. to Mayor Jamael Tito Brown and Councilman Julius Oliver, 1st Ward. They, in turn, handed the keys to Sheila Triplett, chief executive officer of the Mahoning-Youngstown Community Action Partnership.

MYCAP plans to convert the building into a senior center for those with lower income. Its senior program has run out of space at MYCAP’s Fifth Avenue building.

“All we’re really doing is taking down walls. We’re not changing anything else,” Triplett said. “We’re hoping that six [to] eight months from now we’ll be able to come in and begin providing services here.”
