Join us in empowering older adults

The vibrantly aging population of Durham County grows every day. We are home to over 100,000 older adults over the age of 55, with older adults making up the fastest growing segment of the population. In 2030, older adults will account for nearly 25% of Durham’s population.
Our mission is to enrich the lives of these older neighbors, family members, and friends by promoting healthy, active, and independent lifestyles.
The support of donors, benefactors, and sponsors makes our impact possible. Together, we continue to offer vital services and programs to change the landscape of aging in Durham and make a difference in the lives of older adults.
