Read Our Briefing Papers! 

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.

Oregonians Living Longer and Better

Oregonians are living longer, but this “longevity bonus” may come at a cost.

Housing Challenges for Older Oregonians

Increasing numbers of older adults in Oregon are “housing challenged.”

Oregon's New Age Structure

The changing age structure of Oregon is more than just a passing wave.

The Financial Security of Older Oregonians

Converging trends are threatening financial security for older adults.

Mission

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.
