NORTHEAST FLORIDA AREA AGENCY ON AGING INC
December 22, 2009
We are a 5-year-old grassroots volunteer organization in Jacksonville with the mission of empowering frail seniors to continue to live independently via practical services at no charge. As a founder with no social services background, I have found Eldersource to be extremely important in providing the resources we need to do our jobs well. From the Executive Director all the way down to the receptionist, Eldersource's staff is focused on feeding and sheltering seniors, as well as protecting them, educating them, and advocating for them. Linda Lavin is a tremendous champion for this often isolated, ill, and vulnerable population segment - setting the standard for us all.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
use current talent and passion for even stronger influence to bring whole community to table to find solutions for senior needs -- utility company, lenders, local vendors (plumbers, electricians, contractors), etc., to improve living environments.
