Ben Kallos, grew up living with and taking care of his grandparents who had Parkinson's Disease. Ben knows how important services for seniors on a fixed income can be from meals that are home delivered or shared at table to social work to free trips to Broadway shows or even Costco. That's why Ben has always fought to fund programs for seniors and invested millions in senior centers.
As our next Borough President, Ben will:
- Invest in fully funding senior centers.
- Create new senior centers for under served naturally occurring retirement communities (NORC).
- Make Manhattan accessible from fixing every sidewalk ramp to making storefronts accessible.
- Offer every senior who needs it a device with free or low-cost Internet to keep them connected.
