Age-Friendly Forsyth is made up of a variety of organizational partners, including health care and other non-profits, corporate, education, and philanthropic agencies, alongside community members, who have spearheaded local planning efforts through the Age-Friendly Forsyth initiative. Currently Age-Friendly Forsyth is working with key stakeholders to engage residents and the broader community.
The Community Engagement Council
The Community Engagement Council is a geographically based, data-informed, resident leadership body that is responsible for engaging community members to become involved in helping realize Age-Friendly Forsyth’s vision. This is accomplished by hosting several community conversations and events, as well as mobilizing and recruiting the larger community to support pilot projects and efforts based on community need. Community Engagement Council members play a critical role in helping Age-Friendly Forsyth determine priorities.
