Program Description


"We live in an age-segregated society. Our young people go to school together with their age peers. Our older people often are isolated in their senior housing. Communities suffer when generations don't come together to help each other when they don't have a mutual web of support."
-Nancy Henkin, Executive Director of the Intergenerational Center at Temple University.
