I don't know that we have this type of organization here but the listing of events is very similar to city run senior centers. We
have one senior center across Roosevelt on 75th and Broadway and something at St Joan of Arc's too. We could use more
facilities in this area.
I remember fondly working for the Carter Administration's program that connected college students to individual elders. The
seniors paid $1. per hour and your work study monies paid you the balance of wages. The seniors were free to request shopping,
sitting outdoors, help in their house, sharing a meal or just plain listening. We loved it and my friends who were involved say
it was a highlight of their youth in getting to know these elder New Yorkers - often with terrific stories to tell.
Wish someone would bring it back here citywide at least with the full knowledge that our current prez wouldn't give a damn
about this type of involvement but maybe someone else does.
