BRC's Senior Center

Located on the border of the Bowery and Chinatown in Sara Delano Roosevelt Park, BRC’s Senior Center connects the elders from these communities with vital community services that help them stay healthy, independent, and connected with their communities.

The Senior Center employs staff who are fluent in all major Chinese dialects to serve elderly clients who are primarily Chinese, many of whom are marginally housed, medically frail, and chronically ill.

Throughout the week, the Senior Center provides residents with meals of culturally preferred cuisine and culturally appropriate activities such a Tai Chi and English language classes.

Other offerings include:

  • Community, social, and recreational activities

  • Health and mental health services

  • Information and assistance

  • Educational assistance (including ESL classes)

  • Nutritious meals throughout the day
