    I opened my not for profit business called Windsor Essex Seniors Kids Programs. SKIP Windsor is a program we provide in our community. We send classrooms to nursing homes for activities on a monthly basis. Presently we send 15 classes to 15 nursing care facilities. We are hoping to expand and offer more intergenerational programs. As a whole, all participants (students and seniors) learn from each other and form connections and frienships.
