Selfhelp NORCs are at the forefront of senior housing.
Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities (NORCs) are housing complexes where longtime residents, many of whom are now elderly, are committed to remaining in their own homes but need essential support services to do so.
In 1986, Selfhelp was the lead organization at the first designated NORC in the United States. Today, we operate programs in four NORC complexes where we offer residents a broad range of on-site services.
Our personalized social services focus on health and wellness, pioneering client centered technology, education and recreation programs.
To accommodate the growing number of older New Yorkers who want to age-in-place, we are always looking for opportunities to extend our first-rate NORC programs and on-site services to other existing communities of seniors.
