The Senior Services Coalition of Greater Williamsburg (SSC) is an organization of health care providers, government entities, academics, and community members working collaboratively to promote a healthier and more livable community for older adults in the Historic Triangle Area.
In 2005, SSC created the RIDES program, now run by the Historic Triangle Senior Center. In 2010, with funding from the Williamsburg Community Health Foundation, SSC began facilitating the implementation of the Community Action Plan on Aging 2010-2020.
By 2030, one of every three Historic Triangle Area residents will be age 60 or over (US Census, 2005). In response to this startling fact, SSC facilitated the development of the Community Action Plan on Aging, a ten year plan that outlines the activities necessary to make the Greater Williamsburg Area a more livable community for seniors.
The plan was created through research, interviews and community forums led by the Center for Excellence in Aging and Lifelong Health and identifies four issues for action:
- Awareness of and Access to Resources
- Vulnerable Seniors
- Housing and Neighborhood Support
- Seniors as a Resource
Goals, strategies and evaluation measures have been developed for each issue and committees, comprised of volunteers assisted by a small staff, are implementing the Plan.
