PTSCC is a private, not-for-profit organization in Palatine, IL, a northwest suburb of Chicago, that operates the Palatine Township Senior Center. We are one of three accredited senior centers in the state of Illinois and one of 130 nationally.


Our Mission
To provide programs and services which support older adults and their families by encouraging independence, well-being, and connection to the community.

Executive Leadership Transition

As many of you know, Carol Reagan has served as Executive Director of the Palatine Township Senior Citizens Council (PTSCC) for the last twenty years.  During that time, PTSCC has become nationally recognized as an outstanding Senior Center through accreditation by the National Institute of Senior Centers.  We have expanded our services by opening a satellite site at the Community Resource Center, taking over administration of the Congregate and Home Delivered Meals Programs, and adding a variety of recreation programs for active adults. We strengthened our financial stability through the establishment of a number of fundraisers, our Corporate Membership Program, and an Endowment.  Each year, PTSCC makes a difference in the lives of thousands of older adults in Palatine Township and surrounding communities.

Both Carol and PTSCC are reaching a transition point and Carol will be retiring effective July 1, 2019. There are significant future opportunities for PTSCC, and a new Executive Director with different perspectives and abilities will be able to bring us to this next stage of development and sustainability. As a result of this transition, the Board of Directors has hired a search firm to guide us in this transition process. Please click here to review the job profile. We encourage you to share this opportunity with your networks.

We are tremendously proud of PTSCC, its staff, board, and partners, and of the significant change we have been able to both lead and facilitate. We are grateful to everyone who has supported PTSCC, and look forward to seeing PTSCC grow to meet the needs of the ever-changing older population.  

On behalf of the entire PTSCC community, we thank Carol for her incredible leadership and dedicated service these last two decades and especially for her support and insight into this leadership transition.
