Helping Older Adults Bounce Back

Today, 38 million adults over 50 – that’s 1 in every 3 – struggle to meet their basic needs. AARP Foundation, the charitable affiliate of AARP, works to reduce poverty for and with older adults.

Thanks to the help of tens of thousands of dedicated volunteers, we’re providing tools, resources, and services so older adults living with low income can secure good jobs, bolster their budgets, and stay connected to their communities.
