Through the facilitation of learning opportunities, workshops, and forums, the curation of resources, as well as direct visitation, accompaniment and referrals, the New England ARCH Coordinator will foster and equip a community of practice of Quakers in New England responding to both spiritual and logistical aging-related concerns in their local meetings and families.
