At its fall 2021 meeting, the Jarvie Commonweal Service Committee approved grants totaling $250,000 to seven organizations that provide care to the elderly in the New York City area.
The organizations that received grant funding are listed below. We are grateful for the good work these agencies do, and happy to partner with them to serve, advocate, and provide for age-friendly care for an ever expanding population in the New York City area, empowering older adults to live at home.
