Belonging: Aging & the Unison Community
We could say so much about the heart-warming documentary about our Unison community, but let’s let director Rob Kelly, of Kelly Brothers productions, tell you about it in his own words:
“It doesn’t matter what age you are; we all need each other. Whenever you go through a transition, you need supports around you.”
“We can’t survive by ourselves. Community is how we’re wired.”
