Welcome to Mission Week

This pandemic has taken its toll on everyone, especially our Front Line Heroes.  We want you to know that you are not alone and we recognize how difficult this has been.  So, this year, instead of making Mission Day just one day, we want you to turn it into a Mission Week of inspiration.

On this page you will find On Demand programming to nourish your mind, body and soul.   The theme for Mission Week is Stronger Together as we have learned how powerful unity can be in a time of crisis.

Why On Demand?  We are not an 8 to 5 organization.  We serve seniors 24/7!   Many of you are not available during the 8 to 5 workday! Therefore, these programs will remain available for weeks to come so if you want to revisit any of the sessions or catch something you may have missed, it will be there for you when you need it.
