Give65 Campaign, July 10 - July 12

This year, SBSS is proud to partner with the Home Instead Senior Care Foundation and the GIVE65 Event to raise funds for our Technology Education Programs. This 65-hour crowdfunding event will take place online from July 10th to July 12th – but you can pre-schedule your donations right now!

Your donation will help low-income older adults bridge the digital divide so they can access resources online and connect with friends and family. We want to teach more classes in the community so more older adults can have the access and skills needed to use technology as a means to thrive.

I used computers at work but stopped using them after I retired 7 years ago. I had forgotten how to use it. After taking the class I discovered how to go online to search for health information. I also learned how to search for bus routes online, which has helped me to plan my trips. I now feel more comfortable using the internet to search for things that interest me.”

9th Annual LAAAC Summit on Aging

On Friday June 1st, 2018, SBSS held the Los Angeles Aging Advocacy Coalition's 9th Annual Summit on Aging. Held at the USC Ronald Tutor Campus Center Ballroom, this year's summit welcomed more than 300 advocates.

Our conference featured expert panels discussing policies on aging, resources to support continued knowledge and offer tools as well as networking opportunities. It was during these panels and discussions that we were able to take a deep dive into pressing issues affecting the aging community. We looked into the current landscape of healthcare, housing and immigration, while also touching upon how the media, funders and individuals play a role in shaping aging policy. 

Every Summit, LAAAC honors an individual who has demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to aging advocacy, made outstanding contributions to the health and well-being of older adults and caregivers in Los Angeles County, and has demonstrated effectiveness as an advocate for seniors and their caregivers. This year, LAAAC honored two exceptional advocates.
