    In collaboration with the San Francisco Department of Aging and Adult Services (DAAS), the San Francisco Interfaith Council will host a half-day workshop at which faith communities will engage in a rich discussion with DAAS and its partner organizations on serving the needs of our older adults and adults with disabilities. Rev. Jay Williams, the new Pastor of Glide Memorial Church, will deliver the keynote address.

    Shireen McSpadden, Executive Director of the Department of Aging and Adult Services, will discuss the challenges facing older adults and the services DAAS and its partners offer. Michael Pappas, Executive Director of the San Francisco Interfaith Council, will discuss the perspective and resources the Faith Community brings in serving this population. There will be a panel discussion, breakout groups, and a resource fair. At the end of the half-day session, participants will consider establishing an ongoing form of communication.

    **Resource Fair Vendor Opportunity**

    A vital aspect of this event will be the Resource Fair highlighting the rich array of services community organizations offer to older adults and to persons living with disabilities. Your agency is invited to join the Resource Fair by having a table with your materials in the conference center.
