Choice in Aging Grant

Thomas J. Long Foundation Awards Grant

The Thomas J. Long Foundation recently awarded Choice in Aging a $500,000 grant to support its vision of creating an Aging in Place campus in Pleasant Hill. This capacity-building grant will support new staff positions that are key to the success of the project as well as infrastructure improvements to position Choice in Aging for success as it enters an ambitious period of growth.

The Thomas J. Long Foundation has an interest in supporting programs for seniors that enable healthy aging in a supportive community. Senior Program Officer Nancy Shillis said, “Choice in Aging is one of a handful of anchor institutions providing high quality services to seniors in Contra Costa County. The Foundation is proud to be a partner in its important work.”
