Serving as SHOPP's unique core program, the SHOPP Senior Network promotes opportunities for the development of a self help supportive network for older persons. Our 30 SHOPP Senior Network groups are located in almost every Bronx Community Board district and are hosted within senior housing (Sec. 202) buildings, churches, NYCHA public housing and community centers with an annual participation of over 700 older persons (mostly women of color). SHOPP provides supportive services to these groups at their sites which include professional social work services of caseworkers and group workers and educational and recreational activity specialists and instructors who go to each site once a week for a SHOPPsponsored scheduled class or activity. Program supplies, materials, and equipment needed for a specific activity (such as sewing machines, blood pressure monitors) are also provided.
