Coalitions

The Center for Community Leadership works with grassroots coalitions of neighborhood Jewish communal organizations and other ethnic, civic and religious groups throughout the New York eight-county metropolitan area. The collaborations focus on such issues as: the provision of health care to all groups in a community in a culturally appropriate manner; issues of aging populations and neighborhood transitions; special outreach assistance programs for recent immigrants; and integration emigres into communities.

NORCs (Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities) provide long-term support and services within the community where older adults have aged. These communities’ progams allow residents to age in place and provide far better health outcomes than if they had to leave their neighborhood to receive medical care or support services.
