More About VNSNY’s PEARLS Program

Funded by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, VNSNY’s PEARLS program is staffed by experienced mental health counselors who speak a wide range of languages, including English, Spanish, Creole, and Chinese. They will work with the senior to identify the problem and then develop steps that will connect the senior to positive social and physical activities that will, in turn, improve his or her mental outlook and quality of life.

If you know a senior who could benefit from the VNSNY free in-home mental health services, please call: 718-888-6884, or come to the New York for Seniors Health & Resource Fair, in Harlem, Thursday May 9th, to speak to a PEARLS representative in person.

“When people’s physical issues are addressed, they also feel better psychologically.” – Annmarie Franco, PEARLS Program Manager
