June 8, 2023 – Community leaders at an NSN meeting at Cerritos Baptist Church

Keiro’s Nikkei Senior Network (NSN) was established in 2006 and has continued to grow over the decades. However, the way we support and collaborate with organizations within our network is unique to Keiro’s programs today. The NSN program brings together different community leaders who work with their older adult groups at various churches, temples, senior groups, and community centers.

The Nikkei Senior Network currently meets on a regular basis to discuss a variety of topics ranging from activities for older adults, staying connected with members, and emergency preparedness. In addition, groups can share their upcoming events, outings, and opportunities for others community members to participate in.

These meetings allow community leaders to collaborate with one another through shared experiences to strengthen individual programs. These community relationships create bonds across Los Angeles, Orange, and Ventura counties that ultimately enhance the quality of life for older adults in Our Community.
