Social Senior Project

In age of social media and the digital era, senior citizens have fewer opportunities to engage, utilize resources and connect with their communities. The Social Senior Project will provide a needed link between low income, senior citizens, and the community in which they live. This project will provide seniors a place to congregate, create new relationships, and build upon initiatives to strengthen bonds between longtime residents and new neighbors.
