At the start of 2019, Neighborhood House partnered with the Old Persons’ Commission (OPC) in an effort to provide opportunities for those low income senior residents of Rochester, Rochester Hills and Oakland Township to exercise, eat a healthy lunch, socialize and get involved with the community.

“We’re pleased to collaborate with the Neighborhood House to provide this opportunity for senior clients of the Neighborhood House to benefit from the many programs and services offered at the OPC,” replied Renee Cortright, Executive Director, Older Persons’ Commission.

With a generous donation from Stevie and Michael Riley, the following OPC charges will be covered by the Riley Grant: membership cost, congregate lunch at the OPC, transportation if needed, swimming and weight room charges.

“We are excited for this connection with the OPC,” Kathy Losinski, Executive Director, Neighborhood House, said. “We know it will enrich the lives of many of our clients.”

Each Neighborhood House client must go through a procedure to ensure that they qualify for the grant. Clients must be over 50 and a resident of Rochester, Rochester Hills, or Oakland Township and provide a current ID and income documentation.
