Social Change supports one nursing home initiative with the Isabelle Ridgway Care Center on the Near East Side. This program offers opportunities for students to engage with residents by holding weekly workshops including arts and crafts, music, memoir-making and book clubs. A complete list of workshops is forthcoming. This initiative is designed to improve the quality of life for residents of the care center.
