Intergenerational Affinity Group

May 9 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

Virtual Event Virtual Event

The Intergenerational Affinity Group is a self-driven forum of The Encore Network, composed of Network members dedicated to linking the generations to create a better future for all.

May 9 Agenda: This meeting features Derenda Schubert, founder and executive director of Bridge Meadows in Portland, Oregon. Derenda will tell her origin story and outline the following:

  • Bridge Meadows uses the power of community to help children heal from the trauma of foster care. The program includes high-quality affordable housing, therapeutic programs, and intergenerational community support.
  • Elders live in the community, serving as mentors, friends, and caregivers to the children and each other, forming a safety net of care and interdependence.
  • Their Theory of Change shows how this safety net improves quality of life for all three generations: children, parents, and elders.

If you would like to offer up questions in advance, please email Clint Wilkins or Jim McGinley and they will weave them into the Q & A section of the meeting.

If you have questions about the group, please contact Clint Wilkins.
