Quick Facts

Age Friendly Pinellas Kick Off

The Age Friendly Pinellas Kick Off was held in February to discuss Planning for Pinellas County’s next 5-year plan. “An Age-Friendly Community is one where a community’s elected leadership has made a commitment to actively work with residents and local advocates to make their town, city, or county an age-friendly place to live through in the AARP Network of Age Friendly States and Communities.” (AARP) Human Services serves as the lead in coordinating the county’s plan. Pinellas County is recognized nationally by AARP as a leader in our approach working with department champions to create department-level plans and maintaining an Age Friendly lens in the work we do.
