Healthy Lives: Community Support Groups & Workshops


The number of Americans aged 65 and older has increased ten times in the last century (ABC News, August 10, 2013).

SOWN provides community support groups for adults 50+ living independently in their homes and neighborhoods. Healthy Lives helps older adults break through isolation, function independently, maintain well-being, and age in place.

Support groups and workshops are held year-round at convenient, neighborhood locations throughout Philadelphia. Discussion of common concerns, problem solving, and exchange of information, resources and emotional support occur in the groups.
