GROWS Monthly Networking Meetings


A monthly meeting of providers of services to the elderly that fosters greater coordination and collaboration among services. The monthly programs for senior service providers include a networking continental breakfast and a topical presentation. Written announcements are distributed at each meeting. Most meetings are free and are held the first Thursday of January, February, April, May, September, and October, at 8:15-10:30 AM at the Holiday Park Senior Center.


Testimonial

Meeting the needs of seniors is one of the most important and complex challenges facing our community today. We are fortunate to have an organization like GROWS to advocate and educate for older adults and their families. Together with GROWS, we are working to ensure Montgomery County remains a place where seniors, especially the frail and at-risk, can lead meaningful and fulfilling lives.
