To tackle the challenge of combatting social isolation – during COVID-19 and beyond – the Administration for Community Living pulled together partners from across federal government, the aging and disability networks, philanthropy, and industry.
Together, we have created the Commit to Connect campaign, a public-private partnership to:
- Build a nationwide network of champions to collaborate on solutions and help us reach more people.
- Develop an online, consumer-focused tool, or clearinghouse, that matches people who are socially isolated to customized suggestions for resources that can help them connect and engage.
- Establish critical partnerships in communities and across all levels of government.
- Share successful initiatives that can be implemented in communities across the country.
- And more!
Commit to Connect challenges each of us to do our part – to connect and engage ourselves, reach out to others to help them to do the same, and work together to create tools and resources. Everyone has a role to play, and everyone is needed!
If we all Commit to Connect, we can combat social isolation.
