Our 6th Annual Employment event, held on June 25th at the Historic Triangle Messmer Community Services Center was a great success. Over 200 older workers attended the event and were provided the opportunity to meet and talk to local employers looking to hire workers 45 and over.
Typical job openings included, but were not limited to: Teachers, Licensed Counselors, Health Care Professionals, Drivers, Food Services, Technical and Administrative Positions.
Workers came prepared with copies of their resumes and suitable attire to meet and greet over 15 local employers.
This event was a free offering and open to older workers interested in finding a job!
The Vulnerable Seniors Committee focuses on the needs of hidden populations including isolated and frail seniors, low-income seniors and those with mental health issues. The committee works to enhance the support of services to meet the needs of vulnerable seniors and their caregivers.
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.
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, The Senior Services Coalition is facilitating the development of community indicators to assess how prepared the Greater Williamsburg area is to address the needs of our changing demographics. The Community Indicators developed will be easily remembered, useful for trend analysis, and inform community level decision making. Read about other activities in the 2013/2014 Report to the Community.
