The NAYA Family Center, through a generous grant from the Spirit Mountain Community Fund, has remodeled a room specifically for use by our community elders. Elders now have a permanent space to have potlucks and gatherings, and to socialize with one another. The space is also used as an exercise room for elders who want to stay fit and active. Everyone is welcome to attend Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday excercise classes and stay for a nutritious and socializing lunch hour.
The NAYA Family Center has also received a grant from Multnomah County to provide lunches for elders on weekdays. In addition, the grant helps us provide outreach and educational services that supply needed information and access to services available to elders in the community. Elders in the community can also attend various trips supported in part by our partnership with Portland Parks and Recreation.
