Golden Age Project for Seniors (GAPS)

Golden Age Project for Seniors (GAPS) is designed to help Vietnamese American Seniors gain access to information and resources that allow them to lead independent and healthy lives. The assistance provided by AVA includes interpretation, translation, enrollment in senior benefit programs, and the opportunity to engage in friendly visits. GAPS works very closely with the Social Security Administration, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, and Montgomery County Department of Aging and Disability. We have continued partnerships with other agencies and organizations such as Senior Connection and Vietnamese Senior Association of Maryland to leverage resources and share available information and services.
