The Role of CDCs in the Age-Friendly Movement

Mar 14, 2018

If the aim of the Massachusetts Association of Community Development Corporations sounds familiar, it is because MACDC and their member Community Development Corporations across Massachusetts make excellent partners for Age-Friendly Community efforts. 

MACDC is dedicated to creating places of opportunity where all people can live with dignity while participating in and benefiting from our Commonwealth’s economy. CDCs are focused on improving social determinants of health and studies prove their work actually improves the health and well-being of communities.

Recently, the organization posted resources and information on how their members can join the Age-Friendly movement and how creating livable, inclusive and healthy communities aligns with their existing work.

If you are currently engaged in Age-Friendly Community work, check out the MACDC member directory and consider informing the local organization to take part.
