New Free Service, 70 Strong, Launches in January for Mid-Peninsula Older Adults

Older adults, ages 70 and up, have a free handy new resource to discover and learn about valuable activities and services throughout the community. It's called 70 Strong.

70 Strong is the first comprehensive guide for older adults in central and southern San Mateo County.
