Aeon Residents Celebrate Together 


At the end of August, residents at an Aeon property gathered to celebrate the end of summer and the return to school. Coordinated with Health on the Go in Brooklyn Park, Aeon residents gathered each month this summer to learn about health resources available to them in the community. As the last of these events before the new school year begins, that event had even more to offer.

Health on the Go in Brooklyn Park aims to bring health services directly to communities of color and has worked with organizations throughout the city to provide unique opportunities for Aeon residents. In August, residents received Covid-19 vaccinations, blood pressure checks, free personal protective equipment (PPE), and information about other services available to low-income residents in the city. School-age children also lined up to receive backpacks filled with school supplies for the start of a new year.

These practical resources are paired with opportunities for residents to enjoy each other’s company. Residents from across the property came out to share a meal, good conversation, and sunshine. Children were able to enjoy one last bit of summer jumping in the bouncy castles, and members of the Brooklyn Park Police Department came out to play games with the kids. At next month’s event, residents will be able to receive blood sugar tests and other preventative resources for diabetes. We are grateful to everyone who made this event possible!
