GoodLife Meet & Greet Event

Many in the CVL community were unable to join the Meet & Greet session and
missed the opportunity to hear from the GoodLife employees dedicated to serving CVL.
Plus many participants posed questions that were of interest to the entire community.
Yolanda Hargett has prepared the session transcript that captures these and more details regarding our new partnership.

Habitat for Humanity's
Aging in Place Program

 Habitat for Humanity builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses.  Habitat is partnering with homeowners age 55+ through the Aging in Place program.  Exterior and interior home improvements will adapt homes so seniors can live there safely and independently for many more years.  If you own a home in Douglas or Jefferson Counties (Kansas), this video explains how this program can help you.

  Special thanks to Prof. Jane Gibson and her KU anthropology students for their video promoting the Aging in Place program.

Help is Here - KU class provides assistance

Take the next step - tell us what you think about aging in place, what you think it requires to be successful, and what challenges it presents.
 Please send your name and contact information (phone and email) to our instructor, Prof. Jane Gibson,

 A student will contact you to tell you more about the project, answer your questions, and, if you agree, schedule a 30-45 minute interview by phone or internet (e.g. Zoom, Facetime, Skype).

NPR Visits Villages across the Country

National Public Radio's (NPR) Ina Jaffe explores the positive impact that over 200 Villages have made for seniors. She discovers that, with a little help from neighbors, Village members can expand their options for independent living and make new friends in the process.

In her report, Jaffe explores how three different communities have personalized the concept of a Village: 1) Beacon Hill Village in Boston; 2) Englewood Village in Chicago; and 3) Community Connections, a rural Village in California.
