An Elderly Wish Foundation (AEWF) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to make a special wish come true for a senior who has a life-threatening illness.
This foundation has expressed to many families in Contra Costa County the importance of caring for their seniors. The community has benefited from and shared their concern once they learn that a senior, 50 or older, who they know and love, is facing a serious illness or at the end of their life. AEWF has granted many wishes to the residents of Contra Costa County.
The publicity and recognition received from granting a wish has helped touch the hearts of so many families and friends throughout the county. The organization averages about one wish a month, with a current total of 152 granted wishes. With the community’s help, they will be able to grant more wishes in the future.
The tears, laughter and joy expressed by the senior and their loved ones after the wish has been granted are what make this foundation what it is today.
