Community Impact

Working Together to Make a Difference Across the Country

For too many Americans age 50 and over, uncertainty is the new normal. Having worked hard, paid taxes and served their country and community, they now face choices and pressures unlike those of any other age group — choices for which they could not prepare.

Now, more than ever, those struggling in every state need a voice. AARP Foundation — the charitable affiliate of AARP — serves that purpose.

AARP Foundation helps local organizations reach more people and make resources go further. AARP Foundation has identified four priority areas where action will have the greatest impact: hunger, housing, isolation and income.

To learn more about what uncertainty looks like in your state, and how AARP Foundation has a “multiplier effect” for local organizations helping struggling Americans 50+, please visit the individual state fact sheets below:
