Bridge The Gap

When you give to our mission, you:

  • Support an enriching program of socialization, healthy aging, and joy.
  • Provide respite and resources for family caregivers.
  • Enable older adults to live at home longer.
  • Bridge the gap where Medicaid falls short for nearly half of our participants.

Here’s a shout out to all who gave to our spring fundraiser in May and June —
