About Heights and Hills

Heights and Hills was born out of a strong sense of community responsibility in 1971, when clergy and community advocates came together to support their aging neighbors.

We have always been pioneers in developing programs and services to support older Brooklynites to age in place as vital members of their communities. So in 2008, we took up the challenge of expanding overnight from serving 400 older adults in three communities to 1,200 in 19 diverse neighborhoods.

Today, we are one of the largest Brooklyn nonprofit organizations serving more than 4,000 older adults and their families with a variety of essential services, including:

  • Social services for homebound older adults
  • Caregiver support for families and friends
  • Volunteer and intergenerational programs that engage the larger community
  • The Park Slope Center for Successful Aging, a neighborhood hub for active older adults.
