LCC sites are located at existing community-based organizations throughout the county. Each site is headed by a coordinator, who will work with an advisory council of community leaders that will focus on regional concerns and task forces that will deal with issues specific to individual municipalities.

Site coordinators provide educational forums on topics requested by the community – perhaps on elder abuse, older driver safety or healthy eating. They also act as facilitators to put seniors with similar concerns in touch with each other and help them to become their own advocates. For example, they help seniors with common goals to find a meeting place. Or if a group wants to advocate for affordable housing, the coordinator can inform them about hearings scheduled on that topic.

The coordinators also identify gaps in services and create “action agendas” for their regions.

The AARP has helped Westchester set priorities by sponsoring “community visioning” sessions in different parts of the county. These sessions helped coordinators to identify strengths and weaknesses in their regions and to develop practical plans to reach their goals over the next three to five years.

The coordinators welcome calls from people of all ages who are willing to be volunteers. They also hope to hear from experts willing to be included in a speaker’s bureau directory or to teach skills such as computer basics or to offer classes in such life enriching areas as art and dancing.
