Today the Elder Economic Security Initiative™ officially launched in Colorado!
Our state partner, the Colorado Center on Law and Policy, hosted an event focusing on long-term care and family economic security, cosponsored by the African American Caregivers Association. Speakers discussed the Elder Index, which includes data on what it costs for elders to make ends meet in each county. This marks the 14th state to launch the Elder Economic Security Initiative.
