Initiatives

AGE+ in conjunction with our companion organization, the Jessie F. Richardson Foundation, has tackled issues impacting low-income elders for nearly 20 years, with a focus on housing, services and sustainability. Our goal is to help bridge the gap for older adults, families and communities as we support strategies to address the changing face of aging in Oregon. 

Below are some of our initiatives. To see our COVID-19 response pages, please go to Ten Coping Strategies for Older Oregonians During COVID-19, or Circles of Care.
