Older adults are more adversely affected by global pandemics, climate change and political and economic insecurity. Their core need to ensure mental and physical health and well-being is safe, affordable, stable, long-term housing.

The future Belle Reve Center

We know what seniors need to live happy, healthy, productive lives, and that is exactly what we will do through The Belle Reve Center, which will provide both hard and soft services. First, the Center will include amenity spaces – a total of 4,000 sq.ft. set aside for health and wellness, recreation, education, support and socialization. Residents will also enjoy beautifully landscaped outdoor spaces for recreation and contemplation. Our staff will program these spaces, which will also be made available for use by the community. Second, we will connect residents to resources, services and programs in the community
that address their current and future needs. We will provide case management services to the senior residents, including informational referrals, help with benefit and entitlement assistance and access to psychosocial support groups, among other services. We will also engage community partners to provide a variety of programs and services on site. Our goal is to promote relationship building, meaningful human connections, in what will be an intergenerational affordable housing community. The Belle Reve Center will provide the space, the staff and the resources to make these connections and create athriving senior community in New Orleans.
