Encore Careers: What Are the Opportunities?

Elizabeth Fox will present issues of the day and sources to follow for learning about jobs for the public good.

She led a five-year community planning effort and secured $9.5 million in property and gifts to create a new state-of-the-art center.
From 1979-82, Fox was founder and executive director of Christian Communities Group Homes, a model housing program for poverty-level seniors. She currently serves as chair of the group's council.
