PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE

In June, Friendship Centers’ “My Journey” program was designated a Program of Excellence by the National Council on Aging’s National Institute of Senior Centers. This award is designed to honor and promote outstanding efforts made by senior centers throughout the nation to offer innovative, creative and replicable programs for older adults. Only eight programs nationwide were selected for the award, which was accepted by program founder Terry McGannon at the NCOA national conference in Washington D.C.

My Journey provides the opportunity for a person to tell their life story in their own words, which are recorded and sent in an email to the person and/or their children. For more information about My Journey, contact Terry McGannon at 941-556-3236 or tmcgannon@friendshipcenters.org.
