Solutions to community challenges are most likely to come from those closest to the issue. That is why community insights and perspectives are so important.

Hundreds of participants shared insights from across Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. These perspectives help us better understand what is important and how we can help–while remaining committed to following community voice and community-led solutions. This community input informed the Foundation’s new strategic plan, which we’re excited to share with you.

Join us for a webinar on March 29, to learn how we will implement future strategies with community and stakeholders. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Join ACL’s Office of Nutrition and Health Promotion Programs (ONHPP) to celebrate the 51st anniversary of the national Senior Nutrition Program, which is funded by the Older Americans Act.
