WE ARE A LOCAL
volunteer-based, non-profit organization founded to empower members of our community to continue living in our homes, where we want to be as we age.

 

WE EMBRACE
a wide range of opportunities to connect with one another, care about one another, and make choices in how we live, give back and spend our time. 

WE MAKE IT POSSIBLE
to lead vibrant and healthy lives while living in our own homes and being engaged in our neighborhoods and community
.


DID YOU KNOW?
We want to connect with and empower people staying in their

homes and neighborhoods as they get older.

 

90% of people 65 or older would prefer to

stay in their homes as long as possible.

 

Ours is a local volunteer-based non-profit group

inspired by a national model.

 

It is cost-effective: membership in our Network is

$300/yr. for single members and $400/yr. for

households.  We have a scholarship fund.

 

We are accepting members who could use help in their homes, transportation, and/or want to participate in small zoom or in-person interest groups, and summer picnics.

 

Join us by becoming a member, trained volunteer or donor, and spread the word to your friends!
