The 2014 Honorees includes partners that enable the NJ Foundation for Aging to continue its work on behalf of NJ’s seniors. Honorees include the Grotta Fund for Senior Care, Lowell Arye, and Susan Bredehoft, NJFA Treasurer. The Grotta Fund for Senior Care has worked alongside the Foundation to create greater awareness of the diverse needs of seniors. Recently the Grotta Fund funded professional development programs to improve care transitions for seniors as they return to their homes after a period of hospitalization. Lowell Arye has worked in state and federal government, academia, philanthropy and the non-profit sector for more than 30 years. Lowell’s nationally recognized work focuses on the nexus between income security, health and long term services and supports for seniors and people with disabilities. Susan Bredehoft as Treasurer of the NJ Foundation for Aging has provided financial guidance and acumen to the NJFA Board during some fiscally lean years. Susan has also served as Event Chair since the inception of the annual fundraising event.
