Description

This presentation focuses on research conducted with VINE, a non-profit organization based in Mankato and the ways it strengthens community and supports older adults by: (1) helping them remain in their own homes; (2) giving volunteers the opportunity to serve individuals in need; (3) collaborating with other organizations; and (4) running an adult community center that has become a nexus for the creation of multiple, crossing-cutting social ties, thereby reducing social isolation for those who come there.
