Even in a city of 8 million people, it’s easy for NYC seniors to feel invisible, vulnerable and isolated. These feelings can lead to serious physical and mental health consequences, including depression and illness.

At the Carter Burden Network, we fight this isolation with love and belonging.

We provide a caring community for NYC seniors thanks to the generosity of our compassionate donors.


This past year alone, donor support helped us:

  • Deliver 147,000 meals by friendly faces to homebound seniors who are often unable to leave home and receive few, if any, visitors.
  • Serve 119,000 congregate lunches at our senior centers where delicious meals with new neighbors create lasting friendships.
  • Provide 216 hours of weekly programming at our senior centers that improve physical and mental health and combat social isolation.


    Over the years, we have grown from a single center to a network of programs and locations serving the unique needs of more than 5,000 older New Yorkers each year.

    But we need your help to continue providing quality programs and services to the ever-growing number of NYC seniors.

    Give a voice to vulnerable seniors who otherwise might not be heard with a gift to the Carter Burden Network this holiday season.

    Any amount will help support the critical programs and services that our seniors rely on day after day, week after week, month after month.
