Pilot Projects Update 2018

Age-Friendly Places

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

Food & Company

Ralston’s Food & Company creates opportunities for social connection through communal healthy cooking events at community locations.

Age-Friendly Resource Network

Ralston’s Age-Friendly Resource Network increases social connection for older West Philadelphians and empowers them to age in, and remain connected to, their communities by providing education programs led by local experts in aging and helping older adults get online through tablet and internet training sessions called in partnership with Generations on Line (www.generationsonline.org).
