The mission of the Rath ConNEXTions Center, as a non-profit, free service, is to “provide seniors 50+ with education, resources, services, advocacy, and leadership, enabling them to age with independence and dignity” in Central Florida.

This mission is realized through Senior Scholars education programs, referrals to agencies providing assistance and resources, and support groups.  Ongoing seminars and meetings provide current information and research related to healthcare, social services, housing, transportation, and mental health.

Why Call Us?

We provide referrals for:



Health and Welfare     

Education Programs     

Volunteer Opportunities       

Donations to support our efforts


As you face the multi-faceted challenges of aging, know that help is often just a phone call away.  There are many valuable resources-often free-here in Polk, Highlands, and Hardee Counties.  Let the Rath ConNEXTions Center help direct you to the resources that are right for you.

Feel free to leave questions or messages at the phone number or email below, and we will be more than happy to help you.
