My Own Home surveys community needs

My Own Home is a non-profit organization based in Moscow, Idaho. We're new, just established in January. Our mission: to provide services that will make it possible for adults to continue to live in their own home as they age. We hope to begin offering services within a year.

Our goal is to make it easy and affordable for our members to make one phone call to a centralized source to get whatever service they might need when they need it. Like other "aging in place" initiatives nationwide, this grassroots effort is a response to shifting demographics and growing demand for an alternative to assisted living.

We are inviting Moscow residents to participate in a survey that will help us know which services are most important and to gauge the interest of potential volunteers, donors and vendors. We believe it will take a village to make it possible for all citizens to have the opportunity to be fully engaged in our community—regardless of age!
