Goals

For many older residents in Teaneck where many put down roots long ago, the pandemic has increased the challenges they face to affordably and comfortably age in this community. We are working with partner organizations in the region – and with Teaneck’s government, civic and faith leaders – to find ways to overcome the housing, transportation, and social-support barriers that can make a community less livable for people of all ages. In what will be our sixth year, we plan to revive the Community Table program postponed by the pandemic, continue growing our Opening New Digital Doors program of televised and individual technology training, and expand our summer internship program to include opportunities for college students to explore in-demand careers in geriatrics. We also are seeking to develop new outreach and community education programs, building on our mission of ensuring older residents are equipped with the knowledge and resources they need to age in independence, safety and dignity. With your support, we can meet these goals!
