the many challenges they face.

Dear Friends,

The importance of the work that you support at Seabury Resources for Aging can not be overstated. The world, our nation, and our community right here in the DC Metropolitan area are all facing serious challenges. We are at a critical point in how to help a rapidly growing older adult population who, often, cannot meet their basic needs for housing, transportation, quality food and nutrition, and more.  These challenges we face transcend race, religion, politics, gender, socioeconomic status, and hit those hardest that have the least.

Seabury’s mission to provide personalized, affordable services and housing options to help older adults in the greater Washington, DC area live with independence and dignity is, at its core, about creating a better world by helping those who have the least and where needs are the greatest. You are the reason that every year we are able to help thousands of older adults and family caregivers who greatly need assistance. Thank you for making our community a better and more supportive place to grow older.
