The purpose of Action In Maturity is to provide appropriate activities and services to benefit the personal development and quality of life of older people and to support their ability to live independently, within the community, as long as possible. To these ends, AIM maintains and extends partnerships with other organizations and institutions sharing these objectives. AIM does not have a senior center but is an organization committed to outreach through the facilitation of activities in diverse locations throughout North Baltimore. AIM reaches older adults through transportation and outreach.
AIM today now reaches out to thirty eight different satellite sites housing senior citizens. We also provide outreach services to private residences within our catchment area. Our catchment area runs north to the Baltimore County line, south to Pratt Street, east to the Harford Road and west to Park Heights. Research confirms that socialization and transportation are two main elements that contribute to the well being of senior citizens. AIM has expanded all programs to include all the things that our members have always enjoyed. These include, but are not limited to, shopping, concerts, the theatre, lectures, museums, health screenings, movies, sporting events, and personal appointments. AIM is a non-profit organization funded through the Baltimore City Department of Health Office of Aging under the Older American’s Act. We are also funded through membership dues and donations as well as supplemental public and private grants and contributions from the community. AIM is an integral part of the city’s services for seniors.
Action In Maturity (AIM) is a non-profit program that's been helping seniors to get out and about for 42 years. Trips to theaters, restaurants and nature walks as well as plain old everyday grocery shopping comprise the bulk of their services. When the recent civil unrest in Baltimore closed many pharmacies in the affected areas, the seniors who relied on those facilities were stranded without the medication they needed. Seeing the shortcoming in services, MTA partnered with AIM to make sure that our elderly citizens got help, and made some new friends in the process. It's a story we're proud of. We're also honored to be working with the dedicated folks at AIM.
