Bingo Fun with Seniors at Ella Flagg Young Apartments

Enrich the lives of low-income seniors by interacting with them during multiple rounds of the popular game! You’ll help create an inviting atmosphere that builds community among residents, provides companionship, and offers a fun social outlet for seniors who often live alone. The project also allows non-English-speaking residents to practice language skills by playing with those who do speak English.

  • Most residents speak only Korean.

  • 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. The CHA’s Ella Flagg Young Apartments offers subsidized housing for low-income seniors who live independently. Ella Flagg Young Apartments has been a Chicago Cares partner since 2006 for this project.
