Selfhelp’s Austin Street Older Adult Center is a vibrant community that offers older adults socialization, nutritious meals, health and wellness activities, as well as educational classes. Located in the Forest Hills Jewish Center, the senior center has offered a wide variety of life-enhancing programs for over 11 years. Classes are offered in person and virtually. The social worker is available to assist with entitlements and benefits, community referrals, and more. The Older Adult Centers offers social and health classes online to reduce the extreme social isolation felt by many Older Adults during the pandemic. Catered lunches are Kosher and all are welcome to join!

At Selfhelp, we’re hopeful that vaccinations will reduce the spread of COVID-19. We’ve advocated on behalf of our clients, supporting them in planning and scheduling for their vaccines.
In February 2021, we were proud to partner with the Charles B Wang Community Health Center (CBWCHC). With CBWCHC, we opened a vaccination site from our Benjamin Rosenthal Senior Center in Flushing, Queens.
