Our technology partners Joy Zhang and Madeline Dangerfield-Cha, co-founders of Mon Ami, were named two of 2021 Influencers in Aging by NextAvenue! At the beginning of the pandemic, Mon Ami partnered with us to develop a new application of their mobile software to match young volunteers with elders needing support. More than a year and a half later, the Mon Ami app grew into a technology platform for Villages and has improved our ability to serve our members. We are grateful for this partnership and as our Executive Director Kate Hoepke once said, Mon Ami is “a tool for scaling love and human connection!” Congratulations to the Mon Ami team!
