At the Neighborhood Center we engage older adults with varied, vibrant programs that promote Longevity through Education, Art, Recreation and Nutrition.
Working in close partnership with our other sites across the Lower East Side, we ensure our older neighbors stay in good health with nutritious meals, meal delivery for those who are homebound, a monthly food pantry, blood pressure screenings, and regular opportunities for health education. When it’s safe to gather, we keep active with fitness and dance classes, volunteering, and community advocacy. We build connection through technology tutoring, mental health referrals, and telephone reassurance. And we keep everyone inspired by coordinating arts and culture activities and classes, as well as intergenerational activities.
Services are available in English, Spanish, Mandarin, and Cantonese. We are located at 189 Allen Street on the first floor, as are the Manhattan offices of Project Home, University Settlement’s housing services program.
