LeadingAge and Enterprise Community Partners are launching a Learning Collaborative to build strategies that improve outcomes for senior residents while producing cost savings to the health and long-term care systems.
The Learning Collaborative is a platform for teams (consisting of nonprofit, affordable, independent housing providers and their service provider partners) to develop and refine their affordable housing and services models over a 2-year period.

Stewards for Affordable Housing for the Future (SAHF) is also participating in the Learning Collaborative, providing strategic policy support.
The first convening of Learning Collaborative members met in October 2012 in Denver. The collaborative will continue to meet over the duration of the 2-year period.
