CHATHAM, NJ - Older adults represent a rapidly growing segment of the population, as medical advances allow for longer life expectancy and 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 each day. For nearly 27 years, the mission of Senior Services of the Chathams has been to support the independence of our senior community by providing an enrichment center, door-to-door transportation, and information/referral services that enable people to age in place at home for as long as possible.
Investors Foundation has issued a grant in the amount of $1,000 to support Senior Services of the Chathams. Senior Services of the Chathams applied for the grant from the Investors Foundation, which supports non-profit organizations that enrich the diverse communities served by Investors Bank.
“Each year, we are celebrating 90th birthdays with more and more clients. This grant from Investors Foundation will go toward health and wellness programming that will help a growing number of seniors reach that milestone birthday,” am Mansfield, Executive Director of Senior Services of the Chathams, said.
Senior Services of the Chathams welcomes older adults from Chatham and the surrounding communities for a variety of classes and programs that strengthen participants’ bodies, teach new skills, and provide opportunities to socialize and build friendships. Most programs are offered for free, while other classes involve only a minimal charge. This is thanks to individual donations, grants like this one from Investors Foundation and fundraising events that benefit the organization.
