Connect: Green Valley App is Winner of the 2017 Innovation in Technology Award!

Winner of the 2017 LeadingAge Arizona’s Innovation in Technology Award!

Learn how we are taking community services into the digital age by watching the below video.

Now, there’s an app for the Green Valley, Arizona area!

The Connect: Green Valley app is a convenient source of information and solutions for people seeking life-enriching community services. This is one stop shopping, helping people connect with area health, wellness, and support service providers. This app is FREE and updated frequently by Green Valley community service providers.

Connect: Green Valley is an app (interactive application), designed to streamline your search for adult services in Green Valley. Initially funded by a generous grant from the Freeport – McMoRan Community Investment Foundation, Posada Life set out to create a portable and convenient “one stop” for locating and exploring adult services in Green Valley and our surrounding area.  Posada Life designed the application to be user-friendly and operate across multiple devices.

This application was designed based on three pillars: Learn, Locate and Listen.

Learning: Our education section, powered by our Inspired Living Institute, provides the user with targeted information on a variety of topics, all designed to educate the user and provide a solid foundation of knowledge.

Locate: Using the mapping feature, the user can locate services in the desired area, contact those providers and begin to build a plan of action.

Listen: Users may also send providers correspondence and feedback based on services provided.

Where do I find this free app?

On your desktop computer, visit the Connect: Green Valley website.

Or, download the free app to your mobile portable device to allow instant usage when on the go.

DREAMS Come True program now accepting nominees!

“The Future Belongs to Those Who Believe in the Beauty of Their Dreams.”  – Eleanor Roosevelt

DREAMS Come True is a program for area residents age 55+ that can make a lifelong goal become reality or fulfill a new but meaningful life experience that has been out of reach. A committee of community representatives with the staff of Casa Community Services and the Posada Life Foundation make selections twice annually from nominations received throughout the year.  The program is made possible by the Posada Life Foundation, and charitable contributions to DREAMS Come True are most welcome.

The 1st DREAM fulfilled came in the form of a trip for an area woman who longed to see two little granddaughters before her eyesight failed. DREAMS Come True was able to arrange the trip and a family reunion dinner.

The 2nd DREAM brings back memories for a Korean War-era Navy veteran. Kodiak Island is the destination and the veteran and his wife are excited to travel to Alaska where he can see the many changes that have occurred in 60+ years – and to search for what remains of that era of history.

The 3rd DREAM awarded allowed a retired teacher to spend her October birthday with her sick son in Arkansas.

A 4th DREAM was awarded to 2 seniors. One wants the thrill of flying again in a biplane; the other to tap dance in an on-stage performance in front of an audience.

A 5th DREAM is expected to be awarded in Spring 2017.

Do you want to help make someone’s dream a reality?

DREAMS Come True is NOW accepting applications or nominations until March 31, 2017!

Here is the guidelines needing to be fulfilled to nominate a worthy senior:

  • Minimum Age: 55
  • U.S. Citizen or legal U.S. resident
  • Unable to fulfill the dream on their own
  • Capable of experiencing the dream
  • Dreams granted to residents living in the following Arizona geographic areas: Green Valley, Sahuarita, Amado, Arivaca, and Tubac 

Please contact Ellen March, Director of Casa Community Center, for further information at 520-393-6840, or read DREAMS Come True info & guidelines, and submit an application using the below links:
