The O’Neill Center holds a “Friends of” the O’Neill Center fund at the Marietta Community Foundation. The Board of Trustees has designated this fund to be used for support and expansion of the organization.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the year 2030 marks a potential milestone in United States population history. By 2030, all of the baby boomers will have reached age 65 and because of this demographic shift, national projections predict that older adults will outnumber children for the first time.
Over the most recent decade, the older adult population in Washington County, Ohio has grown nearly 3%, while the O’Neill Center saw a 5% increase in the participation of services in one year alone. Based on census data of Washington County and surrounding areas, we can expect to see these numbers continue to rise.
Our community’s population is aging and growing and we must join together to create brighter futures for the older adults and caregivers who need us most. Your contribution to this fund helps us secure a future for older adults in our community.
