Communities for All Ages is a national initiative that helps communities address critical issues from a multi-generational perspective and promote the well-being of all age groups. Both a vision and a life span approach to community building, Communities for All Ages represents a new way of thinking and acting. It focuses on helping organizations, community residents of all ages, and policymakers move out of their silos and work together as allies for community change.
Coordinated by The Intergenerational Center at Temple University, the Communities for All Ages national initiative supports the development of local Communities for All Ages sites across the country. Currently there are 25 diverse sites in the Communities for All Ages national network.
With a rapidly aging population and challenging economic times, Communities for All Ages is demonstrating the value of creating alliances around convergent issues and leveraging limited resources to create community change.
