For All Ages is connecting the generations and inspiring action to end loneliness, reduce ageism, and improve health.
Through evidence-based and evidence-informed, unique events and programs, we create opportunities for positive, collaborative experiences between the generations. We enrich lives, promote kindness and caring, enable the development of trusting relationships across generations, and build cohesive, healthy communities.
We founded For All Ages to end loneliness and isolation, shift norms and outcomes for older adults, and improve the mental, physical, and social health of all people of all ages.
We're reuniting the generations, showcasing the wisdom and vibrancy of older adults, and countering the loneliness and isolation that are at epidemic levels across all age groups.
And we're inspiring others to get involved and act.
We create safe spaces within already established places for people to connect intergenerationally.
We are able to analyze a place, whether it be an adult living community, a school, a community center, or a 'virtual' place, and create a space where people of different ages feel comfortable sharing their authentic selves. Where they can feel joy.
And where they are able to improve their social, mental, and physical health.
We've established this group in response to the need for leadership and coordination among numerous agencies and organizations in Connecticut to address the public health crisis of loneliness.
We invite you to visit the Collaborative's website to learn more about this important initiative.
Connecting the generations. Ending loneliness. Reducing ageism. It's what we do.
And we couldn't do it without you.

Older adults and youth/young adults connected
People have learned about the importance of social health via our educational programs.
People of all ages have participated in and enjoyed our community-wide events.
To date, our programs have connected people ages 5-100 in 73 towns across every county in CT.
Bringing people together across the ages is important for so many reasons. This wonderful video, produced by Kendra Brisco in partnership with Duncaster, highlights some of those reasons.
