CRAFT A COMMUNITY AND BUILD CONNECTIONS
We are proud to offer an environment at Mather for adults 50 and better to find opportunities and resources to age well wherever they live. Our thoughtfully designed initiatives help spark creativity and curiosity, prompt meaningful connections and conversations, and, most importantly, foster a powerful sense of community with ever-changing options that can be accessed in communities across the country. Every Mather program is complimentary, easy to join, and provides helpful instructions and resources; the only decision left is when to start.
