Empowering low-income older adults with the skills and resources to increase their financial stability and overcome existing or future challenges.
Humans need connection. That’s why we’re exploring creative ways to help older adults connect and stay connected — to each other and to their communities.
Collaboration allows us to build on existing programs and infrastructure, avoid duplicating others’ efforts, and maximize the impact of every dollar donated.
At the heart of our work is a drive to find fresh ways of solving problems and meeting needs. We’re passionate about innovation — and we believe that good ideas can come from anywhere.
