Service Program for Older People

SPOP Welcomes First Lady Chirlane McCray

Service Program for Older People was honored to welcome New York City First Lady Chirlane McCray for a visit on March 2, 2015. Accompanied by Donna Corrado, Commissioner of the New York City Department for the Aging (DFTA), and Caryn Resnick, Deputy Commissioner of DFTA, the First Lady toured SPOP and met with clients, staff and volunteers at the geriatric mental health clinic.

The First Lady was briefed on the strategies that SPOP has used to increase access to mental health care, including home visits for frail seniors, partnerships with senior centers where individuals can receive treatment in a familiar setting that is close to home, bilingual counseling, and recovery-oriented services offered through the PROS program.
