"G3 Village will offer affordable housing in a beautiful setting, along with what so many seniors need the most: social connectedness, a sense of community and purpose. I look forward to watching this village grow as it meets the needs of seniors."

In 2008 Toula founded the Caregiver Coalition of Northeast Florida, an influential partnership of private, public and non-profit organizations and individuals working together to positively impact the quality of life for caregivers. With the goal of assisting and encouraging caregivers in this rewarding role, Toula began hosting a live weekly radio show, “Toula’s Tips for Caregivers: HELP IS ON THE AIR” in 2010.
In May 2013, Toula and her radio show, “Toula’s Tips for Caregivers,” won the “Caregiver Friendly Award” in the Media category from Caregiver.com, publisher of Today’s Caregiver Magazine. Toula was recognized in 2014 by The Florida Association of Aging Services Providers with the Minotty Eye Foundation Best Direct Service Provider Award.
