On April 3rd 2017, we launched our new name and brand, the Carter Burden Network (CBN) with a celebration at the Carter Burden/Leonard Covello Senior Program in East Harlem. A big thanks to all of our friends and supporters who came to celebrate, and to those who were celebrating with us in spirit!
Our new identity reflects the breadth and depth of our organization and its growth from a single center to a network of programs and locations in Manhattan that serves more than 5,000 older New Yorkers every year.
CBN Board Chair, Jeffrey A. Weber, said, “The Carter Burden Network has served New York City’s seniors with distinction for more than 40 years – encouraging individuality, celebrating culture and ensuring that the voices of our older adults are heard. And, while our name has changed, our mission remains firmly rooted in our commitment to creating a loving community that addresses the physical, emotional and economic issues unique to aging in New York City.”
William J. Dionne, Executive Director of CBN, said, “Even in this city of 8 million people, it’s easy for seniors to feel invisible, vulnerable and isolated. At the Carter Burden Network, we fight these challenges with love and belonging through our quality programs and services. Aging in New York City can be a challenge. Feeling loved and inspired should never be. To all our seniors, friends, partners and supporters: the Carter Burden Network is your home. This is your network and our promise to you is: We will always go above. You will always belong.
