East Point NORC Calendar

The East Point NORC invites you to come out and enjoy FREE activites, events, seminars,and workshops for seniors.

Naturally Occurring Retirment Communities (NORC's) are housing developments or neighborhoods, which over time have evolved into communities with a significant proportion of households headed by seniors. Researchers have identified more than 5,000 NORC communities throughout the country.

 

        East Point has been designated as a NORC because of the dense population of seniors over the age of 60 living in their homes for more than 30 years. The East Point NORC is currently bridging new and existing community services through partnerships between community organizations, businesses, philanthropies, government agencies and residents to assist older people as they age in place.
