A Unique Opportunity
The Margaret Hague Foundation’s vision is an exciting new concept in response to the fundamental desire for each of us to live in our home safely and securely with as much independence as possible.
The Margaret Hague Foundation will provide such a place. The individualized services residents will receive is unsurpassed in options for elders who otherwise would be at risk of long-term nursing home placement.
Along with providing housing services to our residents, we will also be providing services to care for their social and emotional needs. This will include setting up necessary transportation for our Seniors and organizing volunteers to visit with residents. Our elderly need warm outside human contact and conversation like everyone else. We will be developing programs to meet these and other social needs.
Housing for the Elderly
We are in the process of developing a program to offer affordable housing for healthy low income seniors residing in Ocean and Monmouth Counties. Each home will accommodate 2-4 independent adults of the age 62 or older.
The housing facility will be a shared home offering a state of the art living environment, security, companionship in a family-style living arrangement without home ownership burdens.

Judy A. Minetree will be in charge of the housing program that will be launched in 2021. The first housing facility will be located in Central New Jersey. We will promote our services to local municipality offices, senior centers, churches, service organizations; on our website; through direct mail to the community, service providers, social workers, senior advisors; and at various special events through announcements.
The housing program will be supported by fees for rent, donations from the public, and grants. The rental fee per resident will be approximately 30% of an individual’s adjusted gross annual income to help with the cost of the room and board and additional fees for food and services.
