Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church was a central part of a group of dedicated community organizations and activists who joined together and founded Project FIND back in 1969. Over the decades since we have continued to work together always with a focus on helping the most vulnerable of our fellow New Yorkers — homeless people, the mentally ill, the elderly, to find the shelter and services they need.

This long history of helping others continues to this day, FAPC volunteers at our Coffeehouse Senior Center are famed for not only their hard work preparing and serving meals, the only food many of our seniors will have, but for going above and beyond— mixing, mingling, chatting, helping out on the computers and in so many other ways – always bringing a noticeably joyful atmosphere to their time at Project FIND. They are particularly loved by our seniors, as Fifth Avenue Presbyterian is particularly esteemed and admired by us all. We are thrilled to be able to honor this historic and rich fellowship between our organizations.


The Aging Brain Problem You've Never Heard Of

While leading a fall prevention workshop recently, I mentioned that an older person’s 

walking and balance problems might well be related to the presence of “small vessel ischemic changes” in the brain, which are very common in aging adults.

Your best bet for preventing or slowing down cerebral SVD may be to properly treat high blood pressure and other risk factors before you are 80.


Cher Slays it at the Billboard Awards

Read about it in Vogue ... Happy Monday.  Just Saying.

The legendary pop pioneer trotted out in the bedazzled mesh catsuit and leather jacket ensemble from “If I Could Turn Back Time,” skipping and singing as if no time had passed since that song’s 1989 debut—let alone the 15 years since her last performance at an awards show. The camera cut to her son, Chaz Bono, who beamed from ear to ear as his mother accepted her trophy from Gwen Stefani and took the mic. “So, I’ve wanted to do what I do since I was 4 years old, and I’ve been doing it for 53 years,” Cher said, amid the roaring cheers of the audience. In one of the front rows, Diddy raised both hands and bowed in deference. “Thats not an applause thing, I turned 71 yesterday—and I can do a 5 minute plank. Just saying.”
