Friends of Newtown Seniors is an all-volunteer nonprofit group dedicated to helping the Newtown community address issues that affect the lives and well-being of seniors. Our organization was formed in the spirit of the “thousand points of light” movement suggested many years ago by President George H. W. Bush.
We are a group of individuals taking the initiative to improve conditions for all seniors in Newtown. This is a huge undertaking which will require a broad based effort. It is our observation that although there are some meaningful programs in place which support seniors, they are poorly coordinated and in some cases inadequate to meet the needs of Newtown’s large senior community.
Our webpage provides further information and in particular articulates our mission. We hope you will join us in our endeavors to keep seniors informed and to promote the well- being of seniors in every aspect of their lives.
We will send you future issues of our newsletter Senior Matters and hope you will follow our progress and also contribute your ideas, energy and expertise to help us in our work.
“A great nonprofit doesn’t fix problems, it reveals the power of a community to solve them.”
