This preliminary study explored the correlates of leisure interests and constraints among 39 adult public housing residents from North Carolina and Pennsylvania. Most preferred activities included walking, volunteering, reading, cards, dining out, travel, movies, and music. Pearson and Spearman correlations revealed significant associations between education quality and leisure interests. Education quantity and quality, pain severity and interference, loneliness, and depressive symptoms were significantly associated with leisure constraints. With the growing number of adults depending upon public housing, it is imperative to understand leisure interests and constraints within these communities, to ensure the availability of appropriate community programs and services.
