Collective Commitments - A Maine based social enterprise organization launched in 2016 by Patricia Pinto. In its first 3 years, it focused on helping to support female entrepreneurs in war torn countries and bringing micro-loan programs to USA entrepreneurs. In 2018, Ms.Pinto began her work to disrupt misnomers about aging and to focus on people's desires to age in place. In 2019, she began to serve in her role as the AARP Maine Volunteer State President.

Ms. Pinto sets a new annual plan each year for the focus of this social enterprise. She also recruits other former business leaders to join her in this work. These individuals have key skills for the year's work and are also passionate about helping fellow Mainers.

In 2021,our team will help identify inspiring innovative businesses that are pivoting to remain viable and to thrive going forward in this new post Covid-19 world. We will study the macro-economic environment in a few of Maine's rural counties beginning in Washington County and then Aroostook, Penobscot and Somerset.

Aging 2.0 - In 2021, we will continue to serve as the Brand Ambassador/Local Chapter for Aging 2.0 for the state of Maine. The organization has grown internationally and it now has 230 chapters. We were its 51st chapter in 2018. The organization focuses on identifying innovations and technologies to support the needs and desires of people as they age.

One of the Grand Challenges we will focus on in 2021 is Brain Health.

Brain Health

Maximizing cognitive ability and brain health is increasingly a priority for aging societies as the number of people with Alzheimer’s disease, depression, and other cognitive issues continues to rise. New approaches, tools, and services are needed to increase awareness, reduce stigmas, improve prediction, speed diagnosis, enhance treatment and support caregivers.
