Our Guiding Principles
Embrace aging as a gift
Older adults are vital citizens, capable of providing significant contributions to the community and the economy throughout their life. Our work will reflect respect for older adults.
Plan with the older adult
We value the lived experiences of all older adults. Our work will include and engage older adults in our planning, decision-making and implementation processes.
Advocate and ensure equity
Multiple systems in our community can create barriers to equitable outcomes for all older adults. Our work will incorporate an awareness of the positive and negative influences that impact all older adults.
Connect the community
When we collaborate, we are more effective. Our work will plan, identify, provide, leverage, and coordinate and advocate for opportunities and resources across our community.
Improve quality of life
SALSA will make a difference. Our work will have a demonstrable and positive impact on the lives of older adults.
