Co-op Village NORC | Educational Alliance

Effective, Monday January 10, we are moving all group classes and activities to virtual programming for older adults across Educational Alliance. For a full list of virtual programs visit

One-on-one counseling will be available via phone, email, or Zoom, and members will be able to drop off important benefits paperwork to NORC by appointment. We are re-instituting regular telephone outreach to all of our older adult members.

Our hope is to resume regular programming January 31st. We will update our website regularly as things change. Please reach out to us at 646-395-4505 with your questions or concerns.

Educational Alliance’s Co-op Village Naturally Occurring Retirement Community (NORC) is a social service program for adults over 60 residing in the co-ops located along Grand Street. The NORC, in conjunction with our partners, assists senior residents in successfully “aging in place” by providing opportunities to engage in the community and by offering vital support services.

Co-op Village NORC located at 465 Grand Street, provides adults 60 years and older living in the co-ops along Grand Street and East Broadway with a wide range of social, fitness, educational, and recreational, arts and cultural programs to choose from. Our activities schedule promotes healthy aging for all participants.

Along with an array of classes the NORC provides social work and nursing services. Assistance offered include obtaining entitlements and benefits, homecare, supportive counseling, and access to emergency alarm response systems and much more.
