Joined the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities: 2016-11-16

Structure: Municipally-led

Highlight of 2023: Our biggest accomplishment in the last year has been recruiting a set of volunteers who are excited about reinvigorating Biddeford's age-friendly efforts. Our biggest barrier to getting people involved is that it is hard to get information in front of people since there are so many different places that people go to hear about what's going on in their community. We used a multi-channel approach including print media, email, social media and our website to try to reach as many people as possible.
