DROP IN PROGRAM

Great Light Healing Community Services Society (GLHCSS) is excited to offer The 55 PLUS Drop-In Program.  The world in which we live and thrive have been gravely impacted due to the recent Covid Pandemic.

As we grapple to live in the post Pandemic era, we recognized that many people have been grossly affected and suffered tremendously especially our older adults during the Pandemic.  They were amongst the most vulnerable during the Covid Pandemic and therefore faced the strictest restrictions than any other group of people in our community.  Many older adults live alone, with limited connections and support from family and friends, while others are neglected or suffer abuse at the hands of family members/caregivers.   

We at GLHCSS is here to make a difference!  Our mission is to impact more individuals, families, and communities simultaneously.  Great Light Healing Community Services Society (GLHCSS) is an integral part of Great Light Healing Ministries Int’l (GLHMI).  We are a Christian based organization that seeks to reach out and make a positive impact with services and programs in the lives of those we serve in the community.

Our Mission

This program aims at fostering community connectiveness and engagement for older adults ages 55 and up as to curb isolation and loneliness in a safe, and caring environment.  The program will host a High Tea once a month and a drop-in service twice a month.  High Tea will take place in the first week of each month and the drop-in service will be offered on the second and fourth week of each month. 

Objective

The purpose of this program is to provide a friendly and safe environment for the older adults to meet and interact with other older adults to build friendships and to curb isolation and loneliness while enjoying some fun games, activities, educational speakers, healthy light snacks, and tea/coffee.
