Programs
 

              
For more than three decades, DOROT has been an innovative leader in the fields of aging services and volunteerism. Building upon this success, they initiated a strategic planning process with the overriding goal of strengthening our ability to carry out DOROT's core mission. The strategic plan, adopted by DOROT’s Board of Directors in March 2011, is guided by the Mission Statement highlighting DOROT’s belief that reducing social isolation, along with providing concrete services, has a powerful effect on improving the lives and health of older adults. In revising the Mission Statement, there is more prominence given to the intent that underlies all we do, and emphasize the real impact DOROT's programs have on enabling seniors to live with dignity, independence and improved health in the community.
