Simultaneously, older adults took leadership roles in neighborhood-based change and livable community initiatives on Detroit’s near-east side. Learn the implementation processes the respective collaboratives utilized and examine the roles older adults play in creating social change and maintaining the cultural fabric of Detroit.
