The goal of the BARP Foundation's fundraising initiative is to establish a permanent home for the BARP Foundation Inc., and the BARP Multi-Purpose Cooperative. The BARP Center for Retirees and the Elderly aims to serve its 18,000 and growing members and the community in a one-stop venue where services can be provided and enjoyed conveniently in an elderly friendly atmosphere. The Center is envisioned to be a facility maintained and operated by the elderly for the elderly, keeping them productive and active in their golden years.

This exceptional and first of its kind elderly facility in the city of Baguio will combine an array of basic services and amenities for members and the community. It will provide medical, health, fitness, wellbeing, rehabilitation, lifestyle and legal services with easy access to quality, on-site elderly care. The Center will feature a carefully and thoughtfully planned venue with amenities and activities to enhance the precious leisure time of the elderly as they share and socialize with friends old and new.

Aside from the many personalized services offered, the Center will feature an elderly oriented commercial center with a comfortable, safe and affordable bed and breakfast inn with a pleasant living environment for the elderly and their family. The surrounding landscape will be transformed into a fitness and rejuvenation park.

In May 2011, the BARP Foundation acquired a 750+ square meter lot located in Bokawkan Road, Baguio City where the BARP Center for Retirees and the Elderly is envisioned to rise. Currently, BARP member architects and engineers, along with volunteers and supporters that believe in this advocacy, have teamed up to lay the groundwork, carefully planning and designing the Center, making certain that the design meets the quality and standards of this noble legacy that is to become.

    A Culture and Legacy of Committed Service

    This year, as we celebrate the month-long tribute to the elderly in our city on October, we have envisioned a festival entitled "The Golden Years Festival—A Culture and Legacy of Committed Service." The festival will kick-off on October 13, 2012 with a parade of senior citizens through Baguio's Central Business District and will commence at Melvin Jones Grandstand and Football Field where a Sportsfest for the Elderly will be held. The following weekend, on October 27 & 28, a medical and dental mission will be launched; a Trade Fair and Exhibit will be set-up for participating medical, dental and sponsoring companies that provide aid to the elderly to showcase products and services that participants can avail of; a Food Fair and Entertainment stage will be constructed both inside and out of the Baguio Convention Center for different performances and shows. Aside from scheduled lectures, plenary sessions and demonstrations during the two-day event, there will be a raffle draw intended as a fund-raising activity for the construction of a senior citizens' center.
