Sourcewise Celebrates its 50th Year Anniversary
Santa Clara, November 2, 2023: Sourcewise, a community-based nonprofit organization, has achieved a significant milestone—five decades of successfully serving older adults, persons with disabilities and their caregivers in Santa Clara County. In 1973, the organization opened its doors as the Council on Aging Silicon Valley and offered two programs, Senior Employment Services and Meals on Wheels. Throughout the years, additional services were added and today, the organization offers 17 direct programs and services to meet the complex needs of a diverse community.
Sourcewise will celebrate its 50th Anniversary on Wednesday, November 8, 2023, at 9:30 a.m. at the Delta Hotels by Marriott, located at 2151 Laurelwood Road in Santa Clara. Attendees will include board members, advisory council members, community partners, and volunteers.
During fiscal year 2022 – 2023, Sourcewise directly served 100,901 older adults, persons with disabilities, their caregivers, and loved ones, with help from volunteers and its dedicated team of 90 diverse staff.
“We have made incredible progress to meet the complex needs of a diverse community, but we have much more work to do. As the Area Agency on Aging, we are working closely with leaders in the state to continue to advocate for local needs. We are committed to providing direct services to improve access to care so that our community’s most vulnerable elders may safely age in place—especially those from underserved minority, low-income, and monolingual communities,” states Aneliza Del Pinal, Sourcewise Chief Executive Officer.
During the event, Sourcewise will also present awards to four of its dedicated community partners in the following categories, including: The City of San Jose, Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services Department (PRNS), Outstanding Community Partner Award, Hearts and Minds Activity Center, Community Impact Award, Illja Isani, Outstanding Volunteer Award, and Senior Adults Legal Assistance (SALA), Non-Profit Excellence Award.
