She has Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, which she essentially uses as intended by documenting her rad (post-retirement) life. There’s the occasional selfie with her girlfriends, dispatches from vacations and hikes, her favorite funny signs at political rallies. But the majority of her posts are homages to her children — me and my brother.
We are thrilled to be honoring Charles Lauster at our Annual Gala – Charles has been a stalwart friend and colleague of Project FIND’s, bringing his skill and expertize to our efforts to expand supportive housing for older New Yorkers.
From the beautiful restoration of the Hamilton House on the Upper West Side to the transformation of the Holy Cross Church’s undercroft into a new Coffeehouse Senior Center to the upcoming expansion of the Woodstock Hotel’s Penthouse, Charles is our go to guy!
He’s an architect with a future facing vision for designing spaces that support both independence and social engagement for adults. He has directed the work of his own firm for over thirty years, including the Chung Pak Building in New York, ten stories of low income elderly housing atop a mixed use building, the first ever for the Department of Housing and Urban Development in the country. We are so pleased to be able to honor and thank him for his contribution.

Helen is a member of the Council’s Budget Negotiating Team, Co-Chair of the Women’s Caucus, and sits on the Mayor’s Gender Equity Commission and is a constant, energetic, personally present supporter of healthy and creative aging programming for Project FIND members across the city!
