The Baby Boom has started to retire and Greater Mankato will benefit from their energy and skill. VINE plans to harness their talents so we can all "Age to the Max".

By 2030, Minnesota will have more retirees than school children. Until 2060, the aging of our population will dominate every aspect of our society.

VINE Faith in Action is creating a "one-stop shop" for aging adults to improve physical health, socialize with peers, volunteer to help others, and access needed services. This new community resource includes:

  • an adult respite center (a break for caregivers!)
  • a fitness center and cushioned indoor walking track
  • VINE office space and community gathering rooms
  • room to grow!
