The Sam Pomeranz Jewish Community Center's Neighborhood Advisor Program offers free and confidential outreach, information and referral services to seniors and their caregivers in the eastern suburbs. The JCC's Neighborhood Advisor Kathleen Boccio visits the JCC's Senior Kosher Lunch Program on the third Friday of every month to give a brief introduction. She also holds in-person appointments on that day at the JCC and at other area locations that are flexible and convenient for clients. For information and to schedule an appointment, call 315-478-8634.

Boccio assists seniors age 60 and older by providing information about programs available in the community and by helping to obtain necessary services so that seniors can remain independent in their home setting and community. There is no cost to consult with a Neighborhood Advisor, however donations are accepted and appreciated.

The JCC's Neighborhood Advisor Program is part of Onondaga County Adult & Long Term Care Services and has a long history of serving Syracuse’s eastern suburbs.
