… in their effort to understand how organizations in Massachusetts are responding (or not responding) to the public health epidemic of loneliness and social isolation!

Stage one of this statewide survey will be focused on the work of Councils on Aging (COAs). In future stages, we hope to gather information from different types of agencies. Your insights will help identify best practices, lessons learned, and ongoing needs, contributing to a comprehensive strategy to combat social isolation within our communities!

We are looking for one COA staff member to respond to the survey on behalf of the organization. The respondent should have a broad understanding of the agency’s programming and activities, for instance the executive director or outreach coordinator.

Completion of the survey should take about 5-15 minutes.

As a thank you for your participation, you will have the option of adding your name to a drawing for a chance to win 1 of 4 $50 Amazon gift cards.

The information we are gathering affects the collective well-being of our communities. While your participation is voluntary, we hope you will respond. All survey responses will remain anonymous, unless you chose to disclose your identity.

If you have any questions about this, please contact Dr. Christina Matz at matzch@bc.edu/617-552-1634.

Please complete this survey by Friday, April 19, 2024
