MTFF developed and built the Zeta Center for Healthy and Active Aging which is jointly operated with the City of Baltimore and serves the Park Heights and West Baltimore communities. Z-HAP is an award-winning program, created as a vehicle to engage older adults in health education and self-empowering activities.
