Are you looking for an opportunity to contribute to real change at the grassroots level? Volunteer to be an ambassador for your county! Citizen efforts are vital in these changing and uncertain funding times, and you will have the honor of representing older adults and people living with a disability in your region.
The Heritage Agency is a part of the National Aging Network. We advocate for, plan and assist in funding programs in your county that target the needs of seniors and people living with a disability. Task Forces in Benton, Cedar, Iowa, Johnson, Jones, Linn and Washington counties offer unique opportunities for volunteers to make a meaningful contribution in their communities. The Task Forces meet on a monthly basis for one to two hours.
The purpose of each Task Force is to advocate for the physical, social, economic and political well-being of people over the age of 60 and/or people living with a disability. This includes helping determine and communicate their needs, and supporting us by assisting with the promotion of programs to help meet these needs.
If you are interested in joining any of our County Task Forces or to request more information, please call Melissa Adams at 319-398-5559 extension 5180, or email her at Melissa.Adams@kirkwood.edu. We look forward to hearing from you!
