Central Texas is changing. The Austin metro area has the fastest-growing population between 55 and 64 and the second fastest-growing population of adults 65 and older in the nation.

"We feel that part of a healthy community is one where older adults can live healthy, productive lives safely and independently." Andrew Levack, MPH, Senior Program Officer, St. David's Foundation

That's why we give grants that specifically focus on supporting family caregivers and helping older adults stay in their homes, through programs like in-home care and adult day centers.
