Selected out of nearly 1,600 applications nationwide, Greater Richmond Age Wave, Six Points Innovation Center, the Richmond City Office on Aging and Persons with Disabilities, and the Office of the Honorable Ellen Robertson are pleased to announce their collaborative 2018 AARP Community Challenge grant program award. The project was developed to facilitate social connectedness through neighborhood talents. It will provide for the installation of self-watering garden boxes in the neighborhood of Green Park and the Highland Park Senior Apartments, as well as for educational gardening programs.

Introducing New Age Wave Staff
Please join us in welcoming two new members of our team: Director of Outreach Annie Rhodes (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Age Wave Administrative Coordinator Geunmi Kwon (email@example.com).
Age Wage would like to extend thanks to the Virginia General Assembly and Gov. Ralph Northam for creating and passing the recent legislation to enable Medicaid expansion within the state. Our thanks also to the Age Wave action team members and staff who successfully advocated on behalf of this effort to benefit our fellow community members.
