For over 40 years, DOROT has been an innovative leader in designing programs that enhance the lives of older adults by helping them build social connections with peers and other generations.

In this episode, DOROT's Executive Director Mark Meridy discusses the organization's origin and shares inspirational stories of generations connecting through their work.

In this episode, Generations United's Executive Director Donna Butts referenced our report with The Eisner Foundation, I Need You, You Need Me: The Young, The Old, and What We Can Achieve Together, which highlights national examples—like DOROT—that are reuniting the generations and making their communities better places to live.
