Social Club at Rebecca Johnson Apartments

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

Description Formerly known as Bingo Fun at Rebecca Johnson Apartments. During the project, volunteers will engage with residents to promote community and combat social isolation to support residents’ health and wellness. Volunteers will participate in guided-conversation activities and a bingo game.

Transit Information This location is accessible via the #20 (Madison), #94 (South California), and #126 (Jackson) buses. Street parking is also available onsite.
