The grant will provide funding over the next two years to support the pilot launch of trauma-informed care programming in service to older adults at Eliza Jennings Home. With a shared interest in brain health and cognitive function in older adults, this grant is underwritten through the generosity of Three Arches Foundation’s Harold C.
