Economic Security for Low-Income Seniors: Creating a Comprehensive Service Coordination System
In a December, 2009 Maryland Philanthropy Network program, the National Council On Aging (NCOA) and AARP announced the Economic Security Initiative a two-year national demonstration project sponsored by the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation to integrate economic security infrastructure for low-income seniors. Baltimore was selected as one of nine pilot cities in early 2010, with the Baltimore CASH Campaign as the lead implementer.
Please join Maryland Philanthropy Network's Affinity Group on Aging and the Financial Literacy and Asset Building group to hear the successes and challenges from Year One of this innovative approach to working with Baltimore's vulnerable elderly citizens across multiple disciplines and areas of need.
Urrikka Woods from NCOA will give us an overall perspective of the initiative and Sara Johnson and a case manager from the Baltimore CASH Campaign will discuss their roles in coordinating local services and impacting clients' lives.
This meeting is for members only. Lunch will be served.
