Aging in Place with Habitat for Humanity

With 10,000 Americans turning 65 every day, this is one of the fastest-growing age groups in the U.S.

But a troubling reality is that many older adults, about 19 million, are living in homes that are in disrepair or inadequate for their needs and unable to access resources to make these places livable.

At Essex County Habitat, we understand the positive impact that growing old in your own home and community can have. That’s why we partner with families, communities, and local organizations across Essex County to help older adults improve their homes and their quality of life so they can flourish where they live.

Together,  Essex County Habitat and our partners are fostering safe, livable homes and communities where older adults can thrive.

In order to help older folks across Essex County, we are piloting a new “Aging in Place” program in select communities.
