Pelham Parkway Houses Naturally Occurring Retirement Community (NORC) Supportive Service Program is committed to the enhanced quality of life and independence of its diverse community residents. We are a collaborative partnership, consisting of health and social service providers, the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), and the residents of Pelham Houses, working together to support aging with the vitality of integrity.
The Pelham Parkway NORC serves mostly a Spanish-speaking population, approximately 90% of residents speak Spanish and only half are bilingual. The Pelham Parkway NORC provides enhanced services to its seniors including services such as assisting seniors to apply for Medicaid, food stamps, NYCHA affidavits. Once a month a food stamps specialist comes to the NORC to assist and expedite applications. Moreover, there is a nurse who comes to the NORC twice a week to provide medical and geriatric services. The main focus of the NORC is to provide advocacy work for our seniors – we currently have 350 active cases and continually work to provide the seniors with the best services we can.
