Age Strong Resource Fair, East Boston

Boston residents age 60+ braved the rain on Thursday March 28th to attend The Age Strong Commission’s first of four upcoming free community resource fairs. The fair took place at the Boston Center for Youth and Families, located on Paris St. in East Boston. Attendees came and went throughout the day, collecting information and resources from various city departments and local non-profit agencies. 

Tablers/vendors offered giveaways and provided brochures on a range of topics including health insurance, in-home care, fuel assistance, transportation, and volunteer opportunities. Age Strong’s constituent services team were present on site to provide private one-on-one consultations for older adults applying for public benefits, including the new Medicare Savings Program, which can save older adults hundreds on their Medicare premiums.
