Older Americans Month

Older Americans Month is coming up quickly. It's also Foster Care Month so it's a great time to bring attention to the important role older adults play in the lives of young people whether as primary caregivers, mentors or simply good friends, older adults can provide important connections for young people as they grow to adulthood.

The third week of May is also Intergenerational Week founded by Fred Ramstedt more than 15 years ago. What will you be doing to celebrate and bring attention to the important connection between young and old?
