See agenda for December 5, 2018 meeting: ACTION e. Ratification Of Termination Of 70 Strong Contract And Approval Of Transition Plan - Ms. Kurtzman 15 Minutes
Here's part of the BACKGROUND provided by Pamela"
"In January, 2017, 70 Strong was launched as a source of connecting individuals to
services based on their unique needs. 70 Strong was first envisaged by former CEO
Lee Michelson to address concern over the District’s increasing older adult population who after retirement, tend to become isolated and less connected with others, factors that can lead to poor health outcomes.
At the time, District staff lacked the specific expertise and capacity to operate the program in-house, so Mr. Michelson and the District Board chose to partner with
Peninsula Family Service because of their experience with providing a variety of
services in the community for older adults and because of their deep knowledge and
commitment to older adult health and wellness."
