The City of Elizabeth, in partnership with Lifelong Elizabeth and Jewish Family Service of Central New Jersey, are being recognized for work in the community to bring the needs of older adult residents into focus, creating a community framework with the aim of making Elizabeth a great place to grow up and grow old.  
With this designation, the City of Elizabeth becomes the 7th municipality in the state of New Jersey and the 301st community in the United States to be accepted. The AARP Network of Age Friendly Communities was launched in 2012 as an independent affiliate of the World Health Organization's Age Friendly Cities and Communities Program, an international effort started in 2006 to prepare for the growth of the older adult population on a global scale.
