At AEC, we have long understood that providing high quality programming requires dual stewardship of mission and margin. Beginning in 1982 – three years before the first iteration of AEC launched – our founders began to assess the need for a local “adult day care center” and to research the funding landscape to determine feasibility as well as sustainability.
Over our nearly 40 years of service to the community, we have seen financial sunshine and rain – most recently, of course, due to the tremendous impact of COVID-19. Nimble senior leadership and diligent Board oversight has always enabled us to pivot, adapt and make hay.
We believe that everyone deserves to lead a full life, all of their life – which means that we don’t give up easily.
