Erin Kee is the Program Specialist for Hunger Initiatives in the Economic Security Group at NCOA. Ms. Kee is responsible for managing NCOA’s thirty-seven Senior SNAP Enrollment Initiative grantees, who are responsible for educating and enrolling low-income seniors in SNAP.
Maggie Flowers plays a central role in the development of programmatic activities across NCOA’s economic security division. She manages the Economic Security Initiative, which offers innovative programs to help older adults create a plan to build their own economic security, and the Center for Benefits Access’ Benefits Enrollment Centers, which use person-centered strategies in a coordinated, community-wide approach to help low-income seniors access benefits.
Prior to joining the staff at NCOA, Maggie was the Interim Director of the Elder Economic Security Initiative at Wider Opportunities for Women, where she led a multi-year national campaign to build economic security for elders and their families through advocacy, research, organizing, and outreach. She received her Master of Public Service and Administration, with a focus in nonprofit management, from Texas A&M University.
Millions of older adults are missing out on benefits that make healthcare, prescriptions, and food more affordable.
Workshop participants will learn about benefits that can help seniors improve their economic security, hear lessons learned from NCOA’s Benefits Enrollment and Senior SNAP Enrollment Centers, and find out about tools they can use to assist in the benefits application process.
