Our vision of Home Supports

People want to age in their own homes and communities for as long as possible. At SSM we believe that if practical supports can be accessed as people age, they will be able to stay in their homes for years longer. Communities will continue to receive the gifts of volunteers, mentors, tax payers, entrepreneurs and active citizens who are aging in their town, village, city.

SSM is providing leadership and advocacy to make Home Supports a reality. The Home Supports Initiative was launched on October 1, 2021. This work will continue through the coming months.

This is possible! We need YOU! Please join with SSM and the 4,000+ individuals who have already said “Yes” to making Home Supports a reality.

We are compiling a list of persons who are committed to the Home Supports Initiative. We need your name, phone number and email address. We will not share your contact information with anyone but need it to confirm you are a real individual. More names will lend more power to our demands. SSM will communicate with supporters via email, our website and Facebook.
