“With an increasing population of older and disabled Ohioans, it is especially critical that quality services are available to meet housing, health, and service needs,” Mr. Ray said. “In spite of many challenges facing all providers of senior services, there are tremendous opportunities to innovatively meet the needs of one of our most vulnerable populations. I look forward to working with my peers to meet these needs while sharing the great work of Ohio’s not-for-profit providers of senior services.”
Founded in 1937, LeadingAge Ohio, formerly known as AOPHA, is a not-for-profit association representing approximately 400 not-for-profit senior service organizations located in more than 150 Ohio towns and cities, as well as those providing ancillary health care and housing services. Members are sponsored by religious, fraternal, labor, private, and government organizations committed to providing quality services for their residents and for older persons in the community at large. LeadingAge Ohio is affiliated with LeadingAge, the Washington, D.C.-based national organization and other state and regional affiliates throughout the United States.
Mr. Ray resides in Urbana.
