Social Services

The New Brunswick Senior Citizen Resource Center provides an array of free social services designed to inform, assist and connect seniors to local, county, state and federal programs. Our Social Worker provides professional and confidential assistance to members in a private setting, Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

 INFORMATION & REFERRAL SERVICES

Under guidelines established by the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, Division on Aging (through the Middlesex County Office of Aging and Disabled Services) regarding funding to The New Brunswick Senior Citizen Resource Center, the Center’s primary focus will continue to be on information and referral services in such areas as housing, transportation, crime prevention, Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD), Lifeline, Medicare, Medicaid, SSI, food stamps and other social service programs.

The New Brunswick Senior Citizen Resource Center is proud of its diverse offerings and will continue to offer educational, cultural, recreational and health related classes, seminars, and programs. In addition, a very important outreach aspect of our information and referral services are available to both the active members who come through our doors daily and to the homebound and frail elderly, who are serviced on a personal basis by the dedicated staff of the City’s Office On Aging and over the telephone by members of the Senior Center staff. Information can be obtained by calling (732) 745-5090. We are dedicated to serving the needs of all our members.
