Support Our Aging Religious raises funds and provides grants to help Catholic religious congregations in the United States care for their aging members. These grants address needs such as renovations for accessibility, automatic doors, hospital beds and assistive devices. In addition to safety improvements, our funding priorities are for projects that address quality of life for retired, aging members of religious congregations. This assistance ensures the safety, peace of mind, and dignity of aging Sisters, Brothers and Priests.
