The City of Gaithersburg placed #7 in Fortune Well’s inaugural Fortune 25 Best Places to Live for Families ranking. The list highlights areas in the U.S. where multigenerational families are most likely to have access to critical resources, community support, and financial wellbeing.
This ranking focused on families, particularly the subset of Americans who are shouldering the responsibilities of raising their own children while caring for aging parents. Gaithersburg was ranked high for its cultural diversity and community programming, its perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign’s Municipal Equality Index, its variety of senior activities, and its financial services.
“From our new Financial Empowerment Center to our robust senior programming at the Benjamin Gaither Center, it’s very gratifying that Gaithersburg would rank in the top ten on this national list,” said Mayor Jud Ashman. “We are honored by this recognition and will continue to offer the best support and services to our residents.”
To find hometowns that provided the right mix to meet the needs of multigenerational families, Fortuneanalyzed more than 215,000 data points for nearly 2,000 cities and towns that had between 25,000 and 750,000 residents across the U.S. Data points were collected across five broad categories that included education, aging resources, general wellness, financial health, and livability.
