Purpose and Activities

The foundation focuses on three fields: Aging, Children and Youth, and Criminal Justice. Aging programs seek to support aging programs in general, family caregivers, both those caring for frail elders, as well as elders caring for grandchildren, and to benefit elders and children, families and communities through intergenerational programs. Children and youth programs seek to assist children living in poverty, to intervene early in children's lives, to build their self-esteem and socialization skills, and to prevent abuse and violence against children, including both physical and sexual abuse. The criminal justice programs seek to address the needs of children, families and elderly whose lives may be affected by encounters with the criminal justice system.
