May News from

Community Partnership on Aging

CPA is celebrating our 40th anniversary this year!  Watch our website as well as our newsletter for a variety of ways to participate and support our agency as we celebrate the past and move into the future! 


May is Older Americans Month

    When Older Americans Month was established in 1963, only 17 million living Americans had reached their 65th birthday. About a third of older Americans lived in poverty and there were few programs to meet their needs. Interest in older Americans and their concerns was growing. A meeting in April 1963 between President John F. Kennedy and members of the National Council of Senior Citizens led to designating May as “Senior Citizens Month,” the prelude to “Older Americans Month.”

Produce Plus

 The Produce Plus is in full swing!  Each month eligible older adult residents of our five CPA communities can shop for select produce items (and sometimes more) courtesy of a program through the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.  No reservations are necessary; however participants must meet eligibility (income and age) guidelines.  Click here to read the flyer with details.


Calling Retired Contractors or Tradespeople

 Additional help is needed to provide volunteer consultations for our Safe at Home projects.  This program allows individuals who qualify financially to receive installation of grab bars, railings, and other accessibility equipment.  These installations are completed by a trained professional, but we use skilled volunteers to complete measurements and provide other valuable information before the materials are ordered by CPA.  This typically occurs about two to three times a month.  Sound interesting?  Please call Corinne Dunn, CPA Volunteer Coordinator, at 216-291-3902, ext. 213.
