The needs assessment helped the Tri-Town 55+ Coalition to zero in on the primary concerns of seniors in the towns. Participants engaged in lively conversation during the focus groups and community forums and readily shared their ideas for solving the community’s challenges.
Transportation was identified as one of the top areas of need among the residents of the three communities. The Tri-Town 55+ Coalition's first initiative was to implement an on-demand transportation service and has recently launched its GoGoGrandparent “Rides for Seniors” pilot program.
