Morris Habitat for Humanity believes that everyone deserves the opportunity to age with dignity in their own home and community. The Aging in Place program makes accessibility, energy efficiency, and home improvements for seniors (62 and over) of Morris County. The goal is to help seniors live in their own homes longer and maintain their independence. Morris Habitat recognizes that communities are only as strong as the families who live in them, and families are financially and emotionally stronger when they have a adequate place to live.
Volunteer teams work under the direction of Habitat staff and volunteer supervisors to make changes that will enable seniors to move around safely inside their homes and complete the routines of daily living. By doing this, the program will help senior residents continue to live in their own homes longer and maintain their independence.
