The Community Aging in Place—Advancing Better Living for Elders is a program created by John Hopkins to address people with functional limitations and chronic conditions are four times more likely than the general population to be among the five percent costliest users of health services.
The New Phoenix Initiative
Our mission is to connect individuals with the services they need when they need them. By providing opportunities we provide the formerly incarcerated with increased capacity for growth and hope. The Hairston Foundation established The New Phoenix Initiative to work with community partners to increase employment opportunities for returning citizens – focusing on the healthcare industry.
Our current focus involves advocating for a change to the laws in Pennsylvania. We are hoping to enable home-bound veterans, who are eligible to receive a VA pension through Aid & Attendance and Housebound benefits, to do so without jeopardizing their Medicaid benefits. We are aiming to improve access to a benefit specifically designed for them.
