Residents and advisors of the Gary-Midtown NNORC (neighborhood naturally occurring retirement community), part of the Communities for Life initiative, met to view their survey data and begin planning action steps for the neighborhood. Minietta Nelson is a savvy organizer (a community organizer!) with in depth knowledge of the community and its politics. With support from the Gary Community Health Foundation, Inc., she is spearheading the local project. Communities for Life is an initiative of the Indiana Division of Aging, coordinated by the U. of Indy Center for Aging and Community. These sites are also using the AdvantAge Initiative survey tool and process. The local data can be found here:
