Grandparents & Other Relatives Raising Grandchildren: This monthly group gets together to discuss the joys and challenges of riasing grandchildren and provides helpful tips and resources.

Reminder of Shared Housing Service

The shared economy continues to grow and today we're sharing transportation, community work places, short-term stays and long-term housing. In fact, Shared Housing is seeing an interest, due in large part to older adults who are leading a movement to age in place and stay in their homes for as long as possible.

PLOWS Council on Aging has 30+ years experience matching people who need an affordable place to live with people with houses, apartments or condos. If you are looking for affordable housing, or if you have an extra room in your house, this may be an interesting option for you. Call us at 708-361-0219 to see if we can make a match for you!
