The Leadership Coalition on Aging (LCA), sponsored by Collier Senior Resources (CSR) was established in 2012 as a means for local health and human service providers to collaborate toward enriching the lives of Collier County Seniors and their caregivers. The coalition seeks to foster a community environment that promotes well-being through resource sharing, education, advocacy and community outreach.
The coalition members are local health and human service providers who:
Meet monthly and seek new solutions to serve seniors in our community
Host the annual Collier County Conference on Aging
Sponsors an Empowerment Series for seniors and caregivers with programs offered throughout the year including Alzheimer’s and dementia, death and dying (advanced directives, living wills, hospice, DNR)
Educates local candidates on senior-related issues
In 2013, the Leadership Coalition on Aging with the support of Collier Senior Resources and other local organizations sponsored the FGCU Study on Senior Needs Assessment, and hosted the inaugural Collier County Conference on Aging.
To improve the quality of life in Collier County by connecting donors to community needs and providing leadership on critical community issues. For good. Forever.
The Community Foundation was incorporated in 1985 by local visionaries who believed that a community foundation in Naples, like foundations in other cities across the country, could help charitable-minded people create legacies for the immediate and future needs of the area.
JFCS of Southwest Florida empowers individuals and families by giving them tools to address life’s challenges. Services offered include mental health counseling, geriatric case management, dementia respite programs and the JFCS Food Pantry.
In 2014 JFCS opened the Naples Senior Center, the first senior center in Collier County. With a membership of 800 the Naples Senior Center provides vibrant and varied programming for adults over the age of 60 Monday through Friday.
JFCS of Southwest Florida and the Naples Senior Center provide programs and services to all members of the communities of Collier and southern Lee Counties. All are welcome!
