Lifeforce in Later Years (L.I.L.Y.)

LiLY is helping to change the tide for frail elders, many living alone, who often face dire challenges when families aren’t available. With its Morningside Village and West Harlem Neighbors programs, elders are connected with new friends, with community, with practical help, and with needed services through volunteers and social work staff. With the goal of helping elders to age at home wherever possible, LiLY serves a variety of those who have made their home on the upper west side, many former Columbia University faculty, staff, and even students.
