The Transition Network in cooperation with the Brain Exchange, invites you to our 2014 continuing initiative of meetings and educational presentations to explore housing options for women over 50.
From 6:00-6:30 p.m. we will have orientation for new members, and for those of you who have already attended a meeting, a HOUSING/SHARE/PAIR warm-up, where you will have a chance to make further connections before we do our brainstorming and networking that will start at 6:30.

In the first part of the gathering, everyone will have a short amount of time to introduce themselves and identify a question they have or a resource they are offering. In the second part, a few people will get a chance to clarify their question, and then receive focused time when everyone present will offer their ideas without discussion.
The key support that HOME provides is a hub, or a central meeting ground for women to discover new ways of thinking through housing issues; where they can find other women to explore specific options; and most importantly, to feel supported in this new and uncharted territory critical to our age group. All housing-related questions are welcome.

The Transition Network serves women over 50, the vast majority of whom have had careers. These are women with the potential to change the world, to change each other and change the wider community.
The Brain Exchange is a monthly, open-ended brainstorming group for women, re-introduced in 1995 by Anita Goldstein and Susan Goldstein. Affiliated brainstorming groups are emerging all the time! People brainstorm about relationships, in-laws, children, quality of life questions, career questions, marketing strategies, entrepreneurial ideas, titles for the books they're writing and names for their babies.
Brainstorming is an opportunity to meet like-minded women, to give and receive support for work and personal issues, and to network. It's a process that encourages people to share their new projects, their concerns, their hopes and fears, and to explore transitions. We use a structured process and traditional brainstorming guidelines to generate answers to questions.
