Tempe Community Council is committed to creating a community that not only meets the immediate needs of its aging citizens, but also embraces the concepts of healthy aging.
TCC is proud to be a regional partner with The Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG), who has been awarded a $150,000 grant from the Pfizer Foundation and Grantmakers in Aging (GIA), a national association of funders, as part of Community AGEnda: Improving America for All Ages. This new initiative is funding nonprofits in five U.S. cities to help accelerate local efforts to make communities “age-friendly” – that is, great places to grow up and grow old.
Tempe Task Force on Aging Preparing for the needs of the next generation
In order to properly care for our adult population, we are proud to work with our partners to offer services, such as:
Information and Referral
So Tempe residents can be better informed about existing senior services and how to access them.
TCC advocates for affordable, accessible housing for seniors through partnerships like Encore on Farmer
Intergenerational Education and Training
A healthy community requires the active involvement of citizens of all ages.
Transportation for seniors extends across all senior issues, both in meeting basic needs and in supporting an independent and vitally healthy lifestyle.
Tempe Neighbors Helping Neighbors
Helps adults remain in their homes and communities as they age. Offering volunteer assistance with basic home and yard maintenance, transportation, friendly visits and calls, technology and part care.
Good health is a concern for everyone. Maintaining seniors’ quality of life is essential for living independently and in their own homes.
