​What is the Mission of the Collaboratory for Aging Resources and Education (CARE)?

Through connection, consultation, training, research, and advocacy, the Collaboratory for Aging Resources and Education (CARE) promotes issues impacting older adults, policies that support heathy aging, and a better trained senior services workforce.

What is the Vision of the Collaboratory for Aging Resources and Education (CARE)?

CARE will be the premier resource in the Houston/Harris County area for information and resources pertaining to older adults, caregivers, and the people who work with them.

How can CARE help you?

CARE’s Current Project

Nearly 1 in 7 Harris County residents are ages 60 and older, but as a community, we do not know much about how the population is doing. In 2021, CARE will issue The State of Harris County’s Older Adults, a baseline report with information on key demographic and social trends.​
