Building on the success and impact of JFRF, AGE+ was created to apply JFRF’s mission and commitment to older adults living in rural Oregon communities. AGE+ does this by using JFRF’s successful community development approach that leverages community resources and leadership to develop and grow programs and services that address the economic, healthcare and housing needs of older adults. As in Nicaragua where JFRF has worked for nearly two decades, many of these communities were, and are, constrained by limited infrastructure and limited availability of support services to address the changing and growing needs of the older adults living in their midst.
