Paul Bradley, president of ROC USA arranged the visit, capitalizing on a commencement address Ryerson was making the next morning at Southern New Hampshire University.
The Directors shared the Medvil story. After hearing about the community, Ryerson said, “You are hitting on all of the important elements of what it takes for people to live healthy lives. It starts with stable and affordable housing and from there goes to creating multiple ways people can remain engaged and active in a safe and secure community like this. I just love what you’re doing here!”
The AARP Foundation is both a lender to ROC USA Capital and a donor to ROC USA. The foundation is also funding the development of a guide for ROC members that will include information about securing community infrastructure and home improvement resources.
