DOROT Westchester


Vision, Mission and Values Statement

For more than three decades, DOROT has been an innovative leader in the fields of aging services and volunteerism. Building upon this success, we initiated a strategic planning process with the overriding goal of strengthening our ability to carry out our core mission.

The strategic plan, adopted by DOROT’s Board of Directors in March 2011, is guided by the Vision, Mission and Values as set forth below. The Mission Statement highlights DOROT’s belief that reducing social isolation, along with providing concrete services, has a powerful effect on improving the lives and health of older adults. In revising the Mission Statement, we wanted to give more prominence to the intent that underlies all we do, and emphasize the real impact our programs have on enabling seniors to live with dignity, independence and improved health in the community. In an era of concern over rapidly rising health care costs and a nation that is rapidly aging, our work will have increasing importance.

Vision
DOROT will be an innovative leader in mobilizing volunteers of all ages to improve the lives and health of the elderly, addressing the challenges of an aging society.

Mission
DOROT alleviates social isolation among the elderly and provides services to help them live independently as valued members of the community. We serve the Jewish and wider community, bringing the generations together in a mutually beneficial partnership of elders, volunteers and professionals. Our work provides an effective model for others.
