New York Foundation for Senior Citizens is dedicated to helping New York's seniors enjoy healthier, safer, more productive and dignified lives in their own homes and communities and to help them avoid the need for premature institutionalization.
Some of the more successful experiments of NYFSC include its intergenerational projects. For example, the Arthur B. Brown and William Brown Garden’s senior citizen building’s teenage volunteer program, coordinated with local schools on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, welcomes student volunteers to organize and coordinate group activities including entertainment, gardening, creative writing, sewing, card playing, bingo and exercise classes. These leisure-time activities enrich the ambience of the building and the lives of its residents.
NYFSC has also developed a foster grandparent program for the residents of its Enriched Housing Program and children from local schools. Through sharing gardening and other projects, the elderly and neighborhood children have developed mutually rewarding relationships, one of NYFSC’s continuing goals.
