In a heartwarming display of intergenerational support, the Aliso Viejo Community Foundation recently extended a helping hand to the Covington senior home.

Recognizing the importance of fostering connections and preserving family legacies, the foundation made a generous grant to provide training and access to help seniors create their own family trees.
With this innovative initiative, seniors at Covington were given the opportunity to delve into their family history, uncovering tales of generations past and rediscovering their roots. This incredible journey was guided by eager and enthusiastic students from St. Mary’s school next door.

Tasked with assisting the seniors through the process and adding to the resident’s technology and computer literacy, these young volunteers brought a fresh perspective and youthful excitement to the project. With patience and compassion, they assisted the residents in navigating the digital landscape, offering invaluable support every step of the way.

The collaboration between Covington senior home and St. Mary’s school exemplifies the power of community and the beauty of bridging generational divides. Through this shared endeavor, seniors not only gain access to a wealth of ancestral knowledge but also form meaningful connections with the younger generation.

As stories were unearthed and family trees took shape, bonds were forged, and memories are shared, creating a tapestry of experiences and history. It’s a testament to the importance of preserving our heritage and honoring the stories that make us who we are.

Thanks to the support of the Aliso Viejo Community Foundation and the dedication of the students from St. Mary’s school, the genealogy project at Covington senior home is more than just a research endeavor—it’s a celebration of life, love, and the enduring ties that bind us together. And as the journey of discovery continues, we are reminded that our past holds the key to our future, and that by coming together as a community, we can create a legacy that will endure for generations to come.
