Fair Lawn for All Ages (FLFAA) is a new age-friendly initiative funded by a grant from the Henry & Marilyn Taub Foundation. Our goal is to support programs and resources that will make our community more "age-friendly" or a place where we all want to live as we grow older.
This program will work in partnership with the Mayor & Council, municipal departments, senior citizen advisory committee, local businesses and health and social service providers. Fair Lawn for All Ages is committed to raising the community’s awareness of its senior residents, ensuring that their voices are heard and their ongoing contributions are recognized.
According to The World Health Organization, it's a place that makes a conscious effort to encourage active aging, a place that provides opportunities for such things as good health, inclusion and security. It's a place that enhances the quality of life for people as they age. We believe that an Age-Friendly community is one for ALL ages. Our thought is that whether it's a park bench, walkable sidewalks, adequate transportation, fair housing options, entertainment and activities, or excellent health services, these things will help not only our older residents but our residents of All ages... thus our initiative was coined, "Fair Lawn for All Ages."
The Fair Lawn Youth Volunteer Corps is available for students ages 14-18 and provides them with opportunities to help older adult residents in need.
