From the President and Chairman…

Dear Friends,

I have had the privilege of being in a number of leadership positions fororganizations during my lifetime, but none more rewarding than serving as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Capital City Intergenerational Care, Incorporated. Its focus on intergenerational interaction across the lifespan is interesting, challenging, and purpose driven.


Since CCICI’s inception, we have worked long and hard to develop and implement strategies and programs that improve the lives of children, youth, and older adults. In addition to instruction and care, our youth need the wisdom that interacting with mature role models brings; our seniors need to feel valued and a continued sense of self-worth. Playing learning, and working together in the same environment provide the nurturing that they all need.

I invite you to become involved with this tremendous endeavor. You can support CCICI by voluntteering, participating in its various activities, and giving financially. We look forward to the future with great anticipation.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Sincerely,
Edward V. Ellis, PhD
