Urban Upbound’s “Healthy Aging in Far Rockaway” report was developed under the New York Women’s Foundation Healthy Aging Initiative, a push for evidence-based program planning for aging women in New York City. Following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, Urban Upbound (UU) immediately sent Critical Response Teams (CRTs) on the ground to provide emergency assistance to 196 residents – many of them aging seniors – living in public housing in the Far Rockaways, focusing on issues such as critical repair and access to food, clothing, emergency funds, employment services, emergency transportation, child care, income supports, additional government benefits, medical treatment, and prescription medication. Through the support of the New York Women’s Foundation (NYWF), UU and its research team conducted an in-depth study of seniors living in Far Rockaway Public Housing – research findings indicated that seniors faced a myriad of challenges and housing and health related issues. The “Healthy Aging in Far Rockaway” report highlights some of these issues and aims to raise awareness of the challenges facing aging women in public housing neighborhoods. The overall objective of this report is to: (1) deepen the understanding of senior issues and challenges in Far Rockaway public housing developments and (2) increase collaboration between key stakeholders and community members in an effort to mobilize existing resources and strategically improve service delivery for the aging population.
