ivision Benefits Seniors via Community Outreach

By ivision September 10, 2013

In a perfect world, every older adult would have nearby relatives or neighbors to help prepare meals, clean house, make small home repairs and visit regularly. This kind of assistance is imperative to quality of life — but too many members of Atlanta’s senior population have no such support system.

 “Major thanks to all of you for your work and expertise on this IT Strategic Planning Project. You all really listened and did your research – the results exceeded my expectations.”
– Debra Furtado, Chief Executive Officer, Senior Connections

Senior ConnectionsWhen it comes to serving seniors and providing them with dignity, care and choice and the ability to “age in place,” there’s no better place to turn than Senior Connections. From their roots as a small nonprofit agency 40 years ago, they’ve grown to help thousands of metro Atlanta seniors annually via preparing and delivering 2,500 meals daily, providing home care, and doing home repairs.

Many nonprofits lack the expertise and financial resources to benefit from technology. Hearing about the challenges, the Chief Information Officer from Generation Mortgage, Walt Carter, chose to sponsor Senior Connections and bring together a volunteer team of trusted technology experts to help Senior Connections build an IT roadmap so they could more effectively solicit grants for IT initiatives, improve employee/volunteer efficiencies, and ultimately better serve their customers that depend on them. –Wes Brock

“ivision helped a team of technology leader volunteers to develop a three-year IT strategy for a regional nonprofit. They brought resources and insights to the effort that allowed the team to deliver a high-value strategy tied directly to organizational goals. Wes and Michael are great team members and provided strong leadership on the effort to help our team.”
