Project ORE offers classes in art, poetry, mental health issues, educational trips, and health and wellness. We provide a Jewish experience through a weekly Oneg Shabbat, Hebrew classes, Torah study, and celebration of Jewish holidays. Licensed social workers are available to help with housing referrals, assistance with entitlements and benefits, referrals for psychiatric counseling, medical treatment, and crisis intervention for emergency situations.
In addition to on-site services, Project ORE social workers and interns provide home-based support for older adults in the East Village and Lower East Side. In particular, Project ORE specializes in providing clinical support for older adults with hoarding disorder. Using a sensitive and clinically-informed approach, our social workers and social work interns engage with clients to address potentially dangerous conditions in the home while exploring underlying causes for hoarding behavior.
