Social Isolation program at Brooklyn Community Pride Center


Social Isolation

The Issue:

Social isolation is a growing epidemic — one that’s increasingly recognized as having dire physical, mental and emotional consequences. Since the 1980s, the percentage of American adults who say they’re lonely has doubled from 20 percent to 40 percent. Communities of color and transgender/gender nonconforming people are particularly at risk.

Our Solution:

Brooklyn Community Pride Center provides face-to-face, community interactions for social groups, meetings, and activities in the neighborhoods where people live rather than miles away. A place where people can be their authentic, full self and connect with others like them. Sites will add a collaborative/shared work space (like WeWork) and additional social and meeting spaces.
