Twelve community-based organizations in the Merrimack Valley and North Shore have been selected by AgeSpan to receive a total of $115,550 in Title IIIB federal funding under the Older Americans Act.
The organizations that received funding were: Emmaus, Inc., New England Homes for the Deaf, Community Action of Haverhill, Massachusetts Alliance of Portuguese Speakers (MAPS), Northeast Legal, Ruth’s House, The Center (Lawrence) and the Councils on Aging in Danvers, Middleton, Marblehead, Peabody, and Salem.
“We are proud to support Councils on Aging and other community-based partners in providing services for older adults and family caregivers,” says AgeSpan CEO Joan Hatem-Roy. “Title IIIB funds help maintain a comprehensive system of services that enable older adults to age in place and maintain their independence.”
A portion of AgeSpan’s Title III-B funding supports the work of our community-based partners providing valuable programs and services to older Americans within AgeSpan’s coverage area. Emphasis was placed on addressing the needs of vulnerable/at-risk older adults, legal services, and support for homeless seniors during the allocation process.
