• Greater Bergen Community Action

Make Retirement Golden for Everyone

Many older adults struggle to balance responsibilities including housing and healthcare bills, diminished savings, and often job loss. Our elders have contributed to their communities for many years, and GBCA is here to guide them through the variety of programs and services catered to their needs.

GBCA has partnered with the National Council On Aging (NCOA) to launch the Economic Security Initiative (ESI) in Bergen and Passaic Counties. The ESI Service Center offers a one-stop-shop where older adults will receive private and anonymous assistance and referrals based on their eligibility. Eligibility is based on the client’s ESI/Benefits Check-Up done by case manager, Crystal Harrington, who will assist in developing an action plan for the client. For more information about the ESI Program, or to schedule your free ESI/Benefits Check-Up, contact Crystal at (201) 488-5100 ext. 7166 or CLICK HERE for more information.
