The Power of Collaboration
The Southeast Michigan Senior Regional Collaborative (The Senior Regional Collaborative) was established in 2008 to address the needs of the rapidly growing aging population in Southeast Michigan. Today, the Collaborative is a 30+ member organization - nonprofits and public sector entities - each individually, and collectively, dedicated to providing the highest quality of services to older adults. By working together, these organizations are able to reach a broader audience of policymakers, service professionals, family caregivers and older adults.
Our purpose is to develop a collective framework for advocacy, diversity, awareness and action in support of issues affecting the safety and quality of life of older adults in Southeast Michigan.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life for all older adults and people with disabilities in the region through capacity building and strategic leadership.
Our vision is a region where SRC members combine their collective strength to ensure older adults and people with disabilities live healthier, more fulfilling and productive lives.
