AARP Foundation funded Habitat for Humanity to develop tools to refine their program model for future scalability.
Habitat for Humanity
—Sue Henderson, Vice President of US & Canada Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity’s focus with their Aging in Place (AIP) model is to provide the tools to allow older adults to live independently and continue to contribute to the community. With support from the AARP Foundation from 2015–2017, Habitat:
Learning Modules: Based on analysis of the research, three learning modules were developed for local Habitats interested in Aging in Place. The modules included an overview of aging in America, ways Habitat can extend current programming to better serve older adults, and funding opportunities available as Habitat develops a holistic model that combines housing with other services that support AIP.
Learning Exchanges: Seven learning exchange conferences were held in cities across the nation. These meetings encouraged momentum building and networking about trends in the aging space, discussion of the role that Habitat can play, and identification of common goals with national and local partners.
