Our Mission

Our Mission is clear.

To transform the former St. Mary's of Mt. Carmel Shrine into a future-ready Manistee County-oriented community and senior center that allows the service and accessibility our local residents need and deserve! 

Tomorrow Begins Today!

Please consider supporting this historic project. Your planned giving to The Wagoner Center will positively impact our senior citizens for generations to come and help ensure the mission of the MCCOA will continue now, and in the future. Donate now!
