Providing essential services for nearly 50 years, 55 North is a community-based nonprofit with the mission of supporting older adults so they remain healthy and active in their homes and connected to our community. With a new and innovative approach focused on the changing needs of older adults, 55 North provides individualized support services, including meals, transportation, crisis intervention, and health and wellness programs. The nonprofit recently rebranded, with a new name and new location to be more inclusive and expand the reach of services. Innovating the way essential services are delivered, 55 North has re-imagined and transformed its programming through technology and community partnerships. Creating this new vision is CEO Shelley Goering, whose leadership is complemented by her professional and personal experience advocating for older adults and people with disabilities. Shelley lives the mission and serves from the heart.
