The Y’s collaboration with the local Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities (NORCs) is designed to enrich the lives of older adults throughout the community. NORCs serve the vital purpose of encouraging new and deeper relationships and help to form and sustain informal social networks. NORCs provide information on topics of interest to seniors in the friendly and familiar environment of their own building complexes, making it more accessible to the residents.
Through the NORC Outreach Program, we connect older adults to social services, organize presentations on topics of interest, and offer assistance with navigating their benefits and entitlements. We are grateful for the philanthropic support that funds this program, so we can elevate the quality of life of older adults who wish to age in place with independence and dignity.
