Review for 55 Kip Center, Rutherford, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer (Art Teacher) here at Kip for just over 7 years. While working here at KIP I have been granted many honors including Art and volunteer hour awards. At KIP I have been granted the honor of working with people from all over the spectrum of age ranges and backgrounds. KIP is a very diversified community of people ranging from the ages of 40+ focusing on adult activities.

I have many stories from working here at KIP, the best of which relates to a student who had no confidence in herself. While working with her for the past 7 years, I have gotten her to come out of her skin, no thanks to the great home she has found at KIP. And thanks to the joint efforts we have made, a day never goes by without seeing a smile on her face.

But that is true with all things here at KIP, we are more then just a simple senior activity center we are a true community. We know more than each others face, we know each others names and stories. KIP boasts about keeping "seniors ageless" but what they don't boast about is how they are here for more then just an activity. MOST CENTERS in the area are just for business or to make a quick buck, but here at KIP there is so much more... it is a home.
