St. Louis NORC is a non-sectarian membership-based program of Jewish Federation of St. Louis operating within a three-mile service neighborhood in the Creve Coeur area.  Founded in 2004, it supports the healthy aging of adults 65+ in their homes with programming and services. In 2011, NORC opened its on-site programming (health and wellness, educational, cultural workshops, and bus outings) to anyone in the 65+ age group who has an interest in learning, meeting new people, and exploring some of the cultural institutions in our community.
