Senior Safety at Lorraine Hansberry Senior Apartments

This monthly event includes an exciting game of bingo, as well as coffee and conversation surrounding common scams targeting seniors. By bringing residents together you will help build community among seniors who often feel isolated and provide them with tools to recognize various forms of fraud. This project is contributing to the programming Lorraine Hansberry Apartments already has in place to increase their residents quality of life. Chicago Cares’ volunteer projects are opportunities to connect with our neighbors, challenge our assumptions, change how we think and feel about our city, and inspire action – all while making a tangible, positive impact through service.

Description Through conversations and guided activities, volunteers will work with seniors to discuss the ways in which people can be victims of scams or fraud and identify strategies to protect themselves from these events. During the project, volunteers will assist setting up a light breakfast, facilitating conversations and participating in a fun game of bingo and providing an opportunity for seniors to socialize with other residents and volunteers.

Transit Information This location is accessible via the Green Line (Central) and the #85 (Central) bus.
