An On the Table Discussion this Older Americans Month

Posted by Brad Winick on May 20, 2019 11:54:00 AM

On May 14th members of the H.O.M.E. community gathered to Participate in an On the Table discussion. On the Table is an annual event where people around Chicago gather to share a meal and engage in discussions about our communities. This year, On the Table conversations will become a Memo to the Mayor – a way to let Chicago’s new mayor, Lori Lightfoot, and her administration know how to prioritize what Chicagoans from across the city want. In the spirit of Older Americans Month and H.O.M.E.'s mission we focused our discussion on older adults and where - and how- they will be able to live in the coming years as the aging population grows.
