A healthier community for everyone
Contributing to a stronger, healthier community takes many forms. To encourage community dialogue and education around topics of diversity and historic problems of race and exclusion, The Center launched “Building a More Inclusive Community: Local Voices on Diversity” in fall 2019. The speaker series featured six presentations by local leaders helping to shape a culture of inclusion in Charlottesville.
Finding new ways to connect online ...
The Center presented its first Facebook Live with local musician Silas Frayser. Enjoy his performance here. When we had to suspend all in-person programs due to the coronavirus, the last week of our fiscal year was devoted to moving our healthy aging programs online to help seniors maintain vital connections and engagement.
... and off-site, with the power of partnerships.
The Financial Wellness Series is a strategic partnership with CFA Institute designed to empower seniors in our community at all income levels and stages of life. Along with offering programs on-site at The Center, in year two of the series presenters Buck Klintworth and Jorgen Vik also took workshops to Esmont Community Senior Center, Scottsville Community Senior Center, and Ebenezer Baptist Church.
