Social Club at Lincoln Perry Apartments

By volunteering at this project, volunteers will make an impact on senior isolation. Isolation and a lack of positive community can be detrimental to the mental health and physical well-being of an individual, especially aging populations. Volunteer visits create connection to the physical environment, allowing for relationship- and community-building. Through this program, volunteers will become informed advocates of healthy aging for people who are at the greatest risk of isolation.

Description Formerly known as Senior Breakfast Club at Lincoln Perry Apartments. During the project, volunteers will engage with residents to promote community and combat social isolation to support residents’ health and wellness. Volunteers will prepare and serve breakfast while participating in guided-conversation activities and a bingo game.

Transit Information This location is accessible via the #4 (Michigan Ave) bus as well as the Green line (35th Bronzeville IIT). Free street parking is also available onsite.
