Enhancing and Empowering
The Parkchester Enhancement Program (PEP) for Seniors is designed to assist individuals, age 60 and older, who live in the Parkchester area of the Bronx, NY, and to enhance their health, quality of life, well-being and independence. A wide variety of activities and services, such as health-related, educational, recreational and social work, are offered to the community, with something for everyone.
