Addressing existing disparities

Greater Richmond has a population of over 1.3 million, and is comprised of the City of Richmond and seven counties (Charles City, Chesterfield, Goochland, Hanover, Henrico, New Kent, Powhatan). Greater Richmond contains a unique combination of life in urban, suburban, and rural settings. In Richmond, efforts are targeted on addressing older adults navigate food insecurity, social isolation, and transportation.
