Mission Statement

END AGEISM, UNIFY VOICES, DISRUPT THE NORM, THINK LOCAL Age-Friendly Network Nevada began in January of 2017, after acknowledging a need for an organization to facilitate a network aimed at providing a voice for older adults; that focuses on combating ageism, social and economic insecurities and also helps develop and support organizations promoting an age friendly city. AFNN is committed to local collaboration and thinks local first.

Description

AFNN was founded after recognizing a need that wasn’t being addressed in Southern Nevada. The founder often heard many older adults say "I just want to be heard" whether through disjointed health care, in addressing their needs, and many issues affecting their lives. It became too apparent, that many of these struggles were a product of ageism. Consequently, older adults are facing economic and social issues leaving a lack of connectivity, accessibility, unification, loneliness food and work insecurities, trumped by attitudes that their voice and opinions did not matter.
