A Center for New York Estonian Seniors was founded in 1974 as a sub-organization of the New York Estonian Educational Society. The objective of the organization was to unite seniors of Estonian descent, to discuss and explain issues, new laws etc that concern them, to improve their opportunities for social communication, financial situation and to offer them moral support in their everyday lives.
