What We Do

  • Provide seniors, caregivers, and family members support and access to the resources they need to find and maintain permanent, sustainable housing.
  • Help to prevent homelessness among older adult renters through our Elderly Eviction Prevention program.
  • Provide one-on-one assistance to hundreds of individuals annually, and reach countless others through community events, educational programs and other outreach efforts.
  • Offer decision-making tools and resources to assess options around housing transistions with our Housing Counseling program.
  • Assist older adult homeowners to maintain home ownership and navigate barriers around mortgages and property taxes through our Foreclosure Prevention program.
