The goal of chambanaseniors.com is to provide a living, breathing, dynamic online resource to active older adults in Champaign-Urbana.
Our mission is simple: provide quality information that can enhance the quality of life of older adults in our community. And we believe – along with many others – that Champaign-Urbana offers tremendous quality of life, to its residents of all ages.
We want to be a place where you can find events and happenings in C-U with a comprehensive events calendar and where you can discover paths to a more active lifestyle. Information on ChambanaSeniors.com may help you more efficiently utilize your financial resources; or perhaps it will help you discover the best way to transport yourself to all of the great things our community has to offer.
The vision for ChambanaSeniors was articulated by Age-Friendly Champaign-Urbana, a group of community leaders who are committed to making Champaign-Urbana more livable for community members across the lifespan.
We have been joined in our efforts by two founding partners: Clark-Lindsey Village and the Community Foundation of East Central Illinois, who provided significant resources to launch chambanaseniors.com into reality.
The group behind this site is the same team who have made Chambanamoms.com the top online resource for families in C-U. We sought out the counsel of our partners, and added Terry Bush as our Chief Content Officer, utilizing his valuable insight to advance our site.
Want to write for us? Submit photography? Be our eyes and ears? As we unveil this site – still in its infancy – we are keenly aware that it has so many stories yet to tell, and that we are limited in our ability to tell them all.
We are looking for those stories – and hope that you will share them with us. Check out our “Contribute” page to find out more.
Have an organization or business that presents events of interest to active older adults? Submit them to our calendar. It’s easy.
REMEMBER: WE’RE JUST GETTING STARTED
We look forward to watching this community grow, evolve and change. We can’t wait to see what happens next. Thank you for joining us on this journey.
