But often these selfless, dedicated people go unseen. Which is why we’re proud to introduce the TIAA Difference Maker 100 in partnership with TIAA. We’re highlighting the stories of 100 extraordinary people who are having a positive impact in their communities. And lucky for us, they’re all over America. From an organization in the Twin Cities that provides services for thousands of individuals experiencing homelessness — to a team of caregivers in Honolulu, Hawaii, working to make elderly people feel less alone toward the end of their lives, these people identify the toughest challenges in their communities and use their resources to solve them. They take personal, often tragic, experiences that have shaped or changed them, and work to improve circumstances for others in similar situations.
