JFRF has been working hard to share the facts about aging in Oregon and the U.S. We have 4 briefing papers to inform people about how our country’s age structure is changing and what that means for everyone.
JFRF empowers by:
- Building civic infrastructure
- Identifying, strengthening and deploying community assets.
- Using a multi-generational, sustainable network of resources.
Save the date for the 9th annual golf tournament that benefits elders in Nicaragua on October 21st! Our dedicated supporters in North Carolina are gearing up for the best year yet! Thank you to the golf committee for all of your hard work. Please contact Stephanie...

JFRF changes the world! By helping abandoned seniors in vulnerable regions, we bring light, hope and fresh thinking to a growing issue. Three cheers to Keren Brown Wilson – she introduced our nation to assisted living and now she’s assisting seniors living in poverty around the globe.

I am involved with JFRF because you can directly see the impact of its work. In a poor country like Nicaragua, where there are little to no government resources for impoverished and abandoned elders, JFRF’s support and engagement make a huge difference.

To return to the hogar in Jinotepe and to see the change in the expressions of the same residents I had seen with forlorn dejection 3 years prior, to smiling happiness resulting from the improvements in their lives, one of the most rewarding experiences of my life! Choked me up? You bet! Was it worth the investment of volunteer time and talent and treasure? It was and continues to be.
