Jane Kennedy Excellence in Aging Award

(Atlanta, September 12, 2019) Maureen Kelly, a Lawrenceville resident and founder of Thanks Mom & Dad Fund, received a top honor from Southeast Association of Area Agencies on Aging. “The Jane Kennedy Award is the most prestigious and one of the most long-standing awards in the History of the Southeast Association of Area Agencies on Aging” said Anne Wildman, President of the association.

“For 42 years, this honor has been awarded to a leader in the network who has made outstanding contributions that promote the safety, welfare, and well-being of older persons in the Southeast region. Maureen’s contributions to the network are remarkable, and we celebrate her, as she is most deserving of this prestigious award!”

Kelly founded Thanks Mom & Dad Fund to address the growing funding gap in services for older adults across the state. The organization partners with Georgia’s Area Agencies on Aging to provide funding to senior centers across Georgia.

The Georgia Association of Area Agencies on Aging (G4A) nominated Kelly for this award. “Maureen has been a fierce advocate and fundraiser for aging services across Georgia,” said Julie Hall, President of G4A. “We are proud that her hard work was recognized in the region.”
