AAWGT: Over 10 years of making a difference in our community!
Some of our older neighbors live above the poverty line and yet struggle to pay ever-increasing housing, food, health care, and other expenses. This gap in elder economic security affects about half of all older adults in retirement.
Jo Reed, Director of the Elder Economic Security Initiative for Wider Opportunities for Women, will speak to this phenomenon and share the Institute's Basic Economic Security Tables - a unique data analysis developed by the Institute to focus attention on this issue. Nancy Hoover, long time staff member from the AAC Department of Aging and Disabilities will help put real faces on our neighbors who fall within this category.
After hearing from our experts, we will spend time exploring ways that philanthropy could help this vulnerable population.
This meeting is open to members, their guests and invitees. A light lunch will be provided. Members: please read November minutes so we can approve them at short business meeting!
Parking not available on site. Park on Riva Trace Pkwy near Ginger Cove entrance, and take shuttle into Ginger Cove.
