Diversity Wellness & Outreach Programs
Socialize, participate, & explore
CHATS Diverse Older Adults Outreach Programs promote wellbeing and integration activities for groups of older adults from the following cultural/linguistic groups: Iranian, Russian, Chinese (Cantonese), Italian, South Asian, and Tamil.

Programs may provide a culturally appropriate snack or meal. Transportation is provided where available.
“My son and his wife both work full-time, so I was alone by myself most of the time. Because of the language barrier, I was unable to make new friends. And because of my isolation, I became depressed and had to obtain medication from my doctor to cope. Then, a year-and-a-half ago, I saw an ad for the Diversity Outreach Program for Iranian seniors in the paper, and decided to join. After a few months of participation, I had grown much happier. I even decided to stop taking my medication because I no longer felt depressed. I have made many friends and now I often go out to socialize, talk on the phone and lead an active, healthy life.”
