Senior Birthday Club at Flannery Apartments

Throw a birthday bash for low-income seniors! This monthly party includes music, line dancing, and card games or a spirited game of Bingo. You’ll join in the fun, assemble special goody bags for residents, and cap off the party by singing “Happy Birthday” and enjoying cake with the seniors. By bringing residents together for a fun celebration and socialization, you will help build community among seniors who often feel isolated. Your participation also expands Flannery Apartments’ capacity for improving residents’ overall quality of life.

  • The project alternates between the main building and the annex each month.

  • Easy El access: Red Line

Partner: The Chicago Housing Authority provides rental housing to more than 50,000 families and individuals while supporting healthy communities in neighborhoods across the city.

Flannery Apartments has been a Chicago Cares partner since 2005 for this project, one of multiple Chicago Cares programs at this site.
