ProActiveCaring Steering Committee

The ProActive Caring Program was created by The Center on Aging and DIS-Ability Policy at Mount Saint Mary College in collaboration with seasoned staff in the social service sector and community service providers. Guiding the development, implementation, and evaluation of the program are members of the program’s Steering Committee. This committee also develops the infrastructure needed to support the goals of the ProActive Caring Program and ensures that training materials are culturally competent and linguistically relevant.
