Share Your Talent with Tri-Town 55+ Coalition

Tri-Town 55+ Coalition is seeking retired professionals who can share their talent to help build age-friendly communities in the towns of Chatham Borough, Chatham Township and Madison.  Whether you are retired and looking to stay active, or have a few hours to spare each week, you are invited to join the Tri-Town 55+ Coalition team.

Tri-Town 55+ is a non-profit, 501c3, community-based organization with representatives from business, non-profit and public agencies who partner together to create, implement and promote age-friendly programs and services for older adults and their families within the three towns. The Coalition began in January 2016 with the help of a grant from the Grotta Fund for Senior Care.  The Fund supports the creation of age-friendly communities throughout northern and central New Jersey.

A needs assessment survey conducted in the late spring of 2016 identified transportation as one of the areas of concern for residents.  In response, Tri-Town 55+ Coalition launched its first initiative, the “Rides for Seniors” program.  The subsidized on-demand, 24-hour car service began in April 2017 for seniors 65 and older in the three towns.  To date, the program has over 190 registered riders and has provided over 800 rides. 

Tri-Town is currently working on its Age-Friendly Business initiative with local retailers, restaurants and businesses to enhance the atmosphere, environment and experience for customers.   With access to on-demand transportation, seniors are looking for desirable places to eat, shop and do business.  

Can you share your experience in the fields of technology, public relations, marketing, finance or business with the Coalition?  Do you wish to have an active role in building lifelong communities in Chatham Borough, Chatham Township and Madison?  If so, please consider joining the Coalition team.   Your time, talent and experience will be greatly appreciated.
