CLAWP is investing in and advocating for innovative programs and services that help Metro Denver's Latino older adult population lead active, healthy, and productive lives. In 2012, CLAWP selected three fellows to work specifically on projects addressing veterans, mobility, and policy issues. CSHG member Jose Aguayo, one of these fellows, created a project that seeks to build awareness of and appreciation for the service of older Latino Veterans. He plans to publish a book and create a video about WWII, Korean War and Vietnam War veterans. He wants to learn about veterans' needs regarding health, education, employment, housing and other issues; and facilitate connections to appropriate service providers. If you are a veteran over age 50, or know someone who is, please contact Jose Aguayo or call 303-433-1825.
