Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna & Aging In Community
Part of our community outreach activities includes partnering with the Harford and Cecil counties' libraries. We've been giving a series of presentations to the public on AGING IN COMMUNITY. During those sessions, we distributed HomeFit Guides provided to us from the AARP. We also formed a partnership with Maryland Relay so they could present information about their program and distribute their materials at our sessions.
We currently support aging residents locally through updating their homes with modifications such as ramps, lifts and grab bars. We are looking at ways to further support homeowners as they age in place, particularly in making modifications to our Homeownership and Home Repair Programs. In June 2016, we invited representatives from health care organizations, faith-based entities, Office on Aging, volunteer repair groups, etc., to meet with us and see if there are things we could do better together. Our group is growing as we continue to explore this topic.
