AARP Foundation serves vulnerable people 50 and older by creating and advancing effective solutions that help them secure the essentials.
We're tackling senior poverty by sparking bold, innovative solutions that help vulnerable older adults increase their economic opportunity — fostering resilience, strengthening communities, and restoring hope.
For more than 60 years, we've helped older adults with low income increase their economic opportunity. As AARP's charitable affiliate, we serve AARP members and nonmembers alike.
We address our goals of increasing income and decreasing expenditures by helping older adults with low income secure the essentials, including good jobs, eligible benefits, crucial refunds, and sustaining social connections.
