AGING MATTERS radio and TV

04/23/2019 to 04/23/2019

2701-C Wilson Blvd, Arlington, VA 22201

In 2010, more than a third of older adults had annual incomes below 200 percent of the national poverty level ($20,916). This number will grow as Boomers on the verge of retirement face declining home values, decreased earnings, rising debt, and depleted savings. Affordable housing options linked with health and supportive services are needed as a cost-effective answer to meet the needs of lower-income older adults. On AGING MATTERS this Tuesday April 23 at 2 pm on WERA-LP 96.7 FM, join host Cheryl Beversdorf and Cheryl Ramp, Director of Community Relations, Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing (APAH), for a discussion about housing options and opportunities for low income older adults in our community and how APAH is helping this population.
