Andrus Family Philanthropy

HABF is part of a suite of Andrus family philanthropic foundations and programs.  These include:

The John E. Andrus Memorial —also known as Andrus-On-Hudson (AOH) —is a skilled nursing facility where seniors enjoy a high quality of life with the security of a continuum of care provided within an intergenerational community. Nestled on 26 wooded acres overlooking the Hudson River, the facility was built in 1953 at the direction of Helen Whittier (Andrus) Benedict, the youngest child of John E. Andrus.

The Julia Dyckman Andrus Memorial – also known as the Andrus Children’s Center – is a private non-profit community agency offering prevention, assessment, educational, treatment and research programs that help children and families achieve healthy, stable lives.

The Surdna Foundation seeks to foster sustainable communities in the United States — communities guided by principles of social justice and distinguished by healthy environments, strong local economies, and thriving cultures.  For over five generations, the Foundation has been governed largely by descendants of John E. Andrus and has developed a tradition of innovative service for those in need of help or opportunity.

The Andrus Family Fund (AFF) seeks to foster just and sustainable change in the United States by supporting organizations that advance social justice and improve outcomes for vulnerable youth.
