NYCON's September Spotlight: Heights & Hills, Inc!

Heights and Hills is one of the largest providers of supportive services for community-dwelling older adults in Brooklyn and their families. We provide compassionate and professionally delivered services that address older adults’ physical and emotional challenges and we help put supports in place to allow elders to age on their terms, independently and with dignity.

Heights and Hills promotes successful aging in the community.

Our mission statement is guided by the following beliefs:

  • Older adults are assets to their communities.
  • Older adults’ skills, experience, and wisdom enhance our civic organizations and institutions as well as individual lives.
  • Older adults are an economic asset to communities.
  • Making communities livable for older adults benefits all residents.
  • Older adults are entitled to live as independently as possible, with dignity and personal choice.
  • Professionally delivered home and community-based services for older people are essential.
  • Support for caregivers helps bind generations and improves outcomes for all.
  • Advocacy for issues pertaining to aging is critical.
