Cities For all Ages - Construction Apprentice

About Civic Works, Inc.

Civic Works strengthens Baltimore’s communities through education, skills development, and community service. Our key program areas include community improvement, workforce development, education, and green programs.

Civic Works’ AmeriCorps members tutor and mentor students, create community parks and gardens, help homeowners conserve energy, grow food for low-income residents, rehabilitate abandoned houses, involve families in Baltimore City schools, make homes safer for older adults, and recruit volunteers. Civic Works also trains Baltimore residents for employment in the healthcare and green job industries.

About Cities For all Ages

Civic Works’ Cities for All Ages (CAA) program strives to ensure that older adults live healthy and successful lives within their Baltimore communities. Free services are offered to adults, ages 65 and older, living in Baltimore City. These services include Home Repair, Home Safety Modifications, Occupational Therapy, Case Management, Community Outreach and Education, and Information and Referral. According to AARP, the Census Bureau estimates that close to 8 million people in the United States will be over the age of 85 by 2020. One of the most common problems facing older adults is living in a home that no longer matches their needs and abilities. By assessing home safety risks, addressing fall hazards, installing rails, and improving lighting conditions, CAA helps prevent accidents at home. While improving the home environment, the CAA team can also evaluate additional potential needs of seniors, including occupational therapy. CAA’s occupational therapists can adapt environments, modify tasks, and teach new skills, all of which help seniors improve their ability to perform daily activities. CAA also provides older adults with free resources that help save money on energy costs, such as energy-saving light bulbs, low flow water faucets and more. Additional information is available through the program to help connect seniors with benefits and services around the city.
