Projects for 2016

Ralston’s Age-Friendly Places

Ralston’s Age-Friendly Places creates intergenerational opportunities by piloting ways in which public parks and spaces can be safer and more inviting for people of all ages, and by removing barriers that prevent older West Philadelphians from using neighborhood amenities.

Ralston’s Age-Friendly Resource Network

Ralston’s Age-Friendly Resource Network seeks to increase older West Philadelphians’ access to existing resources and alleviate social isolation through paired volunteer relationships, one-on-one navigational assistance, and a dedicated help line.

Ralston's Food & Company

Ralston’s Food & Company improves older West Philadelphians’ access to fresh food, nutritional resources, and opportunities for social connection through communal cooking and individual assistance with food access.
