The mission of the Foundation's health care program is to improve the health care and overall quality of life for the elderly of New York City. Our success will be measured by the positive impact that the program has on people's lives.
In 2002, the Foundation's Board and staff completed a strategic planning effort in order to target our grant-making to those areas where our resources can best address the challenges facing New York City's elderly.
As a result, the Foundation's Healthy Aging Program is taking a new direction. It is shifting from applied research to patient-based and social service activities that directly help the elderly of New York City. It will aim to improve the way health and social services are delivered by providing support for innovative, effective, efficient and caring organizations.
