Senior Services began in 1986 as a way to address the unique needs of homeless and housed older adults, age 60 and above.

Housed Seniors: For many elderly, isolated individuals, our Senior Service Program serves as a bridge to critically needed community services. Case managers work with older individuals, and often their friends, families and neighbors, to develop service plans that will allow them to maintain the maximum level of independence appropriate to their situation. These plans address housing needs, provide advocacy for new or continuing government benefits, link seniors with In-Home Supportive Services, and assure that medical, mental health, nutritional and social needs are adequately met.

Homeless Seniors: Our case managers work with homeless older adults to meet their unique needs. Most referrals come from hospitals, police and fire personnel, concerned community members and our own Homeless Service Center. Many homeless seniors have been on the streets for years and, having adapted to these circumstances, may not easily take to another way of life. By building trust and explaining options, our staff helps this very vulnerable group of people accept the housing, benefits, treatment and services they need to, literally, save their lives.
