Cobb County Senior Services History

Initiated by a grant in 1972, the Marietta Cobb Community Service Center was created as part of the Marietta Housing Authority.  When the agency became part of Cobb County Government in 1984, the name was changed to Cobb County Senior Services (CCSS).

Marietta Cobb Community Service Center celebrated its grand opening on August 30, 1972, at 350 Lemon Street. In 1977, the center was moved to 368 Wright Street. In 1989 the center was renamed Marietta Senior Center and moved to 32 Fairground Street, along with administrative offices, until 2012.  When Cobb County Government purchased the Powder Springs Station shopping center in 2009, the property was converted to County facilities. On August 29, 2012, the grand opening was held for the new CCSS administrative building at 1150 Powder Springs Street.

Since 1972, CCSS has grown from providing limited services to a large department offering multiple services and seven (7) senior centers conveniently located throughout the County. Services include information & referral, case management, transportation, trips, in-home services, wellness services, nutrition services, home delivered meals (Meals on Wheels), community health and education, community outreach, veteran connection services, recreation, and volunteer services.

As the premier agency in Cobb County, we have been providing services, programs, resources, and supports for community members 55+ and their families for over fifty (50) years.
