New initiative set to provide seniors with access to more programs.

The Senior Center Without Walls initiative was launched by the Berks County Area Agency on Aging (AAA) and the Secretary of Aging Brian Duke on Monday.

The scheme is essentially an outreach project that takes senior programs directly to neighborhoods where there are a significant number of elderly people in need.
