    This all still seems like very good information to have available.

    Which of the listed faith organizations are welcoming and affirming? I’ll probably call to ask.

    (that is my current e-mail if you want to answer directly)

    Thank you.

    Some of the FaceBook links don’t seem to work. (Maybe one has to have a FB account for them to display ?) Many older adults don’t engage with FaceBook and other common social media for one reason or another.

    Yellow Springs, you have the best community support program through your NBC outreach for villagers that I’ve seen. It’s so important that folk know they’re not alone and so much more than just saying “we’re all in this together.” Thank you so very much for all you do! Kindness springs from the heart.
