Senior citizens (over 55) in the Greater New Brunswick and Middlesex County area access resources, establish connections, and address their physical and mental health needs. They also reach out to their peers and other individuals during times of isolation.
ENLACE utilizes a strength-based approach focusing on social connections and community engagement. This is especially true in the current environment of social isolation. We work with current and new families seeking services that are offered free of charge and bilingual English/Spanish. These services are provided by Telehealth and the various health care agencies in our area.
Some services provided by ENLACE include:
- Assistance with enrolling in home energy assistance, weatherization, food assistance programs, SNAP, health insurance, and other social services
- “Buddy System” (that connects those who are in similar circumstances for socialization and connection)
- Up-to date information on COVID 19, as well as clarifying information about vaccine programs and maintaining safety measures
