Talk of Ages
A Talk of Ages with Judy Cockerton
Monday, February 24, 20141:00 P.M. - 2:00 P.M. Village Ballroom
Join students in "Communities by Design" to hear a remarkable story of a woman who heard a news story of a 5-month-old boy living in foster care who had been kidnapped out of his crib - never to be found - and, she had to do something. In 2001, Judy Cockerton created Treehouse at Easthampton Meadow - an intergenerational housing community for families who have adopted or are planning to adopt foster children, and for people age 55 and older committed to supporting the families as "honorary grandparents."
