SOWN At a GlanceThe Mission: SOWN provides innovative solutions so adults 50+ lead independent, healthy lives and age in place in their homes and communities.
As a pioneer in providing cutting edge supportive services, primarily to women over 50, the Supportive Older Women’s Network (SOWN) recognizes how physical health is intrinsically tied to emotional well-being and the strength of mutual support. SOWN provides evidence-based, cost-effective, collaborative services in 25 locations throughout Philadelphia. SOWN prevents and reduces isolation, protecting older adults from depression and related serious health consequences. Whether for a grandparent raising a grandchild, an elder with health concerns, a caregiver for a loved one who is ill, or an older adult living alone, SOWN is there - extending a lifeline of support.
