Poor physical or mental health can prevent or complicate the pursuit of education, employment, and other opportunities for economic mobility.
Geographic Focus AreasThe Foundation supports capital projects that enable older adults to age in their communities throughout the United States.

Housing Upgrades to Benefit Seniors (HUBS) in Baltimore City and Baltimore County Age-friendly Upgrades for Seniors (BCAUSE) are collaborations of nonprofits, local government, and philanthropy to enable low-income older adult homeowners to remain independent by providing home modifications and repairs—including grab bars, electrical and plumbing repairs, and roof and furnace replacements—in addition to wraparound services. To date, the Foundation has invested $13.8 million in these initiatives, which serve more than 3,400 older adults.
The Foundation supports Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) across its priority communities in an effort to expand access to dental and behavioral health care. This initiative has been particularly important in Hawai‘i and rural areas where access is severely limited. Over the past three years, the Foundation has awarded more than $11 million for the renovation, expansion, and operational support of FQHC facilities, allowing them to serve a greater number of patients.
