We are a family of active seniors who share a passion for living life to the fullest by learning new skills and forging meaningful relationships along the way.
We offer consistent, varied programming, activities, meals, and resources to seniors 60 years+ in Orleans Parish.
HEALTH & WELLNESS
Getting older doesn't mean you have to stay home, alone. At Kinship, 90% of the fun is making new friends & trying new activities. If you want to stay strong and healthy, join us for daily movement & meditation exercises, Tuesday Music & Movement class, or our Share & Support Circle. For seniors in Orleans Parish, ask about our daily hot meals through Meals on Wheels.
Every Tuesday, Kinship hosts pianist and music instructor Nancy Healan in leading our seniors through music and movement from cultures around the world. From Latin rhythms to traditional Southern folk music, seniors can explore music through group singing, dance, and playing instruments! Our seniors are often joined by professional musicians in this joyful class!
MUSIC & MOVEMENT
Ready to go on an adventure? Kinship members visit places like Longue Vue House & Gardens, the New Orleans Museum of Art and Morning Call coffee as well as weekly trips to Walmart, Dollar Tree or Rouses. We also take our members to special luncheons around town and various New Orleans Council on Aging events. We've even gone to Baton Rouge to advocate for senior-funding!
The GHP is an award-winning senior program that incorporates drama therapy with acting on stage. Seniors work as a team to write their own plays, spend several months rehearsing, then perform the original plays at nursing homes & community centers around town.
It’s fun, thrilling, and accessible for anyone willing to try!

GROUPS: LANGUAGES, GAMES, CRAFTS & MORE!
Would you like to learn a new language, create stories, or complete your first knitting project? How about learning how to enhance your health and wellness while building community? Our group classes make every beginner feel welcome and every expert a possible teacher. Many of our activities are created and taught by seniors, too!
The safety of our community remains our highest priority. We highly encourage full vaccination against COVID-19, including boosters. While all of our members have received their vaccinations, we are currently still requiring indoor-masking to protect the most vulnerable among us.
Kinship rents space from an ADA-exempt facility. We are currently working to raise funds for a removable wheelchair-accessible ramp; however, until further notice, we do not have the ability to accommodate persons who use wheelchairs.
