Henry Street Settlement's NORC (Naturally Occurring Retirement Community) program brings comprehensive supportive services to the Lower East Side community's older residents in response to their unique needs and cultural diversity. The Vladeck Cares/NORC Supportive Service Program is a financial and cooperative partnership between the Henry Street Settlement and the New York City Housing Authority. This innovative and unique model brings a wide array of social and health care services to Vladeck Houses, the first NORC in public housing.

Developing solutions that enable seniors to remain living at home for as long as safely feasible, is in keeping with their preferences, promotes their physical and mental wellbeing, and is a promising solution to help deflect the significant financial costs of long-term care anticipated with the retirement of the 78 million Baby Boomers. This issue is an immediate concern of the Jewish community, which is presently aging at nearly twice the national average. As such, it is a top priority of United Jewish Communities – the umbrella organization of the Jewish Federations of North America, one of the nation’s largest networks of non-profit community-based health and social service agencies.
