Enriching the Lives of Older Adults

Helping older adults experience an optimal quality of life.

Goddard Riverside’s programs for older adults help men and women age in their homes while staying active, social and healthy.

The Senior Centers are vibrant communities offering social activities, exercise, outings, and nutritious reduced-price meals.

Our NORCs (Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities) encompass three neighboring affordable housing cooperatives on Columbus Avenue and several NYCHA buildings in Lincoln Square. They provide support to help older adults thrive at home, including case management, exercise, nutrition, nursing, educational workshops, classes, social activities, trips and access to social workers.

Phelps House provides 167 units of affordable housing for older adults and people with mobility impairments. It also offers a range of supportive services for longtime tenants who have aged into their 70s, 80s, and 90s.
