Social isolation and loneliness are commonly experienced by older adults including retirees, widowed spouses, empty nesters, and immigrants. The goal of these bilingual luncheons is to provide a safe and consistent gathering place, opportunities to socialize with friends and meet new people, ways to keep the mind active and engaged through presentations and social activities, and a sense of community.
We are in need of dedicated volunteers who can help us provide a safe and vibrant space for the senior participants. Service hours are available for students.
