Our Housing Options Mini-Conference 
at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on May 25 was a hit!

Well over 100 people attended, and the overwhelming consensus 
was that the conference was very informative, providing 
numerous ways for older adults (and those who care for them) 
to age safely and comfortably in place.

Mayor Frank Huttle also stopped by and responded to numerous
questions about housing (and other topics) in Englewood.

 Below is a list of presenters and their topics.
