The Jessie F. Richardson Foundation empowers communities, in resource constrained areas, to provide multi-generational support for underserved older adults.
JFRF empowers by:
1. Building civic infrastructure
2. Identifying, strengthening and deploying community assets
3. Using a multi-generational, sustainable network of resources
We succeed in achieving our mission by investing in long-term partnerships to build capacity in local communities in Oregon and beyond. We listen and seek to understand the needs within communities, then promote the development of effective, culturally sensitive, and sustainable solutions by utilizing available resources. We strive to work with communities to strengthen human assets and organizational processes so that both can support collective community priorities.
