The purpose of a Senior Outreach committee is three-fold:
To inform the North Springfield senior citizen community of services that may be available to them at little or no cost from Fairfax County and other organizations, as well as activities and volunteer opportunities.
Seniors can often use assistance with yardwork, shoveling snow or other services. If you are interested in lending a hand or if you are a senior in need of assistance, please email email@example.com. Seniors (and non-seniors) can also utilize the Teen Job List which is printed in our newsletter. Teens on the list perform services in the neighborhood at an affordable cost.
The Senior Outreach Committee supports the goals and objectives of Fairfax County’s 50+ Community Action Plan. This community-driven program identifies thirty one initiatives across a broad range of topics, including housing, transportation, health & safety and long-range planning. The plan especially covers information about scams and other kinds of fraud targeting seniors. This Plan can be found at the Fairfax County Family Services Older Adults website.
To educate younger generations about warning signs that indicate senior citizen neighbors may no longer be able to live independently, and to provide resources for those serving as caretakers for senior residents.
A home is a sacred place, and the North Springfield Civic Association is committed to helping our seniors live independently for as long as possible. As part of that effort, the Senior Outreach Committee maintains a current contact list OF seniors FOR seniors. If you have ideas, concerns, or to make sure that your information is on the Contact List, please email your Senior Outreach Chairperson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
