and the Capital District Senior Issues Forum (CDSIF)
request your participation in the following program:
Faith Community Initiatives Promoting Healthy Seniors
Friday, May 13, 2005, 8:15 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.
First Lutheran Church of Albany
646 State Street, Albany, New York 12203

Noting the wonderful and quiet work of those engaged in faith-based efforts to serve seniors in the Capital Region, participants in this program will have an opportunity to share their work and learn about the work of others. Our multi-faith planning committee seeks to reach people engaged in hands-on efforts promoting healthy seniors. Through structured focus groups we hope to learn about what you do, how you define success, and the barriers and supports to serving elders through faith community efforts. Learning from your experiences and ideas we plan to use this May 13th forum to develop an agenda as to how ENCR and CDSIF can better support those engaged in this critical work.

PROGRAM AGENDA:
Refreshments and Registration 8:15 Welcome and Introduction by Walter Leutz, Brandeis University and ENCR Outside Evaluator 8:30 Welcome and Opening Prayer by Sr. Mary Ellen Holohan, Chair, Faith-Based Subcommittee CDSIF 8:40 Structured Focus Groups; Feedback Sessions; Next Steps 8:45-10:30

SPONSORING ORGANIZATIONS:
The Elder Network of the Capital Region seeks to create an exemplary environment for all aging individuals in the four main counties of the Capital Region -- Albany, Rensselear, Saratoga and Schenectady. With the active participation of older persons in the planning and implementation processes, ENCR strives to promote a consortium of health networks, state and local government, provider agencies, faith communities, and the University at Albany that works toward a measurable reduction in the need for hospital care and institutionalization and an increase in the quality of life and independence of aging persons in the four-county region. The Capital District Senior Issues Forum is an interfaith and community initiative of individuals and organizations brought together to identify issues and advocate for older seniors living in a variety of settings. Forum participants - volunteers, faith community representatives, housing administrators, other providers, government officials, former senior honorees, advocacy group representatives and others - share a common concern about potential actions affecting seniors.

DIRECTIONS AND PARKING DIRECTIONS:
The First Lutheran Church Sanctuary is located at 181 Western Avenue, although the building we will be meeting in is behind the Church at 646 State Street. (Note: This is a "hidden" portion of State Street, not connected to the stretch the runs from Washington Park down to the Capitol.) From the Capitol: Take Washington Ave west (Rte 5). Turn slight left onto Washington where it meets Central Ave. Stay straight onto Western Ave. Go past the SUNY Downtown Campus on your right. The Church is located after Lake Avenue but before Quail Street on Western Ave. After Lake Avenue, take the first right turn onto Cortland Place with an immediate left turn into the Church parking lot.

From Thruway West: Exit 24 (Northway 87), go through tolls and take Western Avenue exit (Route 20). Get into left lane and exit left onto Western Avenue. Follow Western Ave past SUNY Albany and State Government campus on left. When road divides, stay left on Western (not right onto Madison), and follow past College of St. Rose. The Church is on your left, just past Quail Street. After you pass the Church, turn left onto Cortland Place, with an immediate left turn into the Church parking lot.

PARKING:
Use the Church Parking Lot, which you enter from Cortland Place, off Western Avenue. If registration exceeds the capacity of this parking lot, First Lutheran Church will also open the parking lot that is adjacent to 181 Western Avenue. (This lot is on the West side of the Church sanctuary - located on the North side of Western Avenue and about half way between Quail Street and Cortland Place.)

Participants are welcome to bring brochures and program information for our display table.
We hope you will join us!!
