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.

Veteran Advocacy

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.

Prostate Cancer Awareness

Our focus is to make the public aware of prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in America. Due to this realization we want to ensure that everyone has the resource to this information and navigate.

The Center for Aging and Disability Advocacy

This program places emphasis on advocating for Medicaid services for clients who wish to remain living in the community as opposed to moving into a nursing home or similar facility.
