Our Long Term Goals Include:

• Develop and support preventive health and wellness activities to promote healthy older adults.

• Strengthen our leadership and advocacy role, and recognition, in the community as the primary source for information on programs and services, major trends, problems and causes, best practices, and funding resources relating to older adults.
