Help make Multnomah County more age friendly!
Even if you missed the live Age Friendly Multnomah County forums*, you can still watch the presentations from the forums and help guide county policy and service delivery by taking the Age Friendly Forums survey. Your input is valuable as it will be presented directly to the county department management, as well as to the county commissioners during current and future Board of County Commissioners meetings.
*The live forums in Gresham and Portland featured presenters from the Departments of Health and Human Services who described the current status of county age friendly services and their hopes for the future.
