I work for a nonprofit organization and am always looking for resources, tips, ideas and websites to help me with my job. The National Council on Aging has posted so many helpful articles, links, etc. and has not only helped me do my job better, but has helped to provide valuable information to the residents at the apartments where I work! Thank you.
