SOMA 2021 SENIOR SURVEY

Please Complete the SOMA 2021 Senior Survey

The SOMA 2021 Senior Survey seeks your feedback in several areas such as Programming and Recreation, Transportation, Housing, Health and Wellness, Accessibility, Pedestrian Safety and Walkability, Communications, and your perception of our Towns and SOMA Two Towns for All Ages.  We are endeavoring to get the greatest level of return and to reach the broadest breath of our senior community across all neighborhoods and socioeconomic levels.  The survey is available in various forms, but we hope you will respond using the online version, It will take about 20 minutes to complete.

Accessing the survey and completing it is easy.  You can go directly there, https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SOMA_2021_Senior_Survey,, or click on the survey link on our website, somatwotownsforallages.org.  If you would like to complete the survey via telephone, email us at [email protected] with Telephone Survey on the subject line, include your phone number and preferred days/times for a Seton Hall University student to call you.  Printed copies are available at both town halls, both town libraries (Hilton Branch), Maplewood Senior Center, Dehart Center, and the local senior apartment buildings.  All responses are confidential.  Completed surveys can be returned to either of these locations.

We encourage you to complete the survey as soon as you can.
