helping older adults flourish where they live
Our Aging in Place Program
Creative Community Partnerships Helping Seniors Age In Place
10,000 Americans turn 65 every day making them the fastest-growing age group in the country. By 2030, 20% of the US population will be 65 or older.
About 19 million older adults live in homes that are in disrepair or inadequate for their needs and cannot access the resources to make these places livable. This is why Habitat partners with families, communities, and local organizations across the U.S. to help older adults improve their homes and quality of life, allowing them to flourish where they live.
