The aging process happens during an individuals life span. We are all involved in this process and none can escape it. We must look at the older individuals as unique individuals, each with a particular set of resources and challenges. It takes everyone to ensure that the elder population has available information and programs to meet there needs. Families First for Mississippi and its partners will continue to be a leader in this mission.
