For 25 years the Elders Living At Home Program has been at the forefront of ending elder homelessness in Boston. Over the last two and a half decades, ELAHP has touched the lives of 2,500 people, not only clients, but their families, care providers, policy makers, public and private funders and students from a variety of disciplines.
Featured Client Story: Juana
"...The only thing I regret was that I didn't do anything earlier."
Juana is 62 years old, but her youthful face belies her age and the hard life she has lived. Ten years ago, Juana's husband left her for another woman, and Juana fell into a debilitating depression. She decided to move to Boston from New York City to be closer to her son and daughter. Read More...
Featured Sponsor Story: Tom Karoff
During his time at ELAHP, Tom discovered just how much he loved trying to help others, even if the end result was not always what he had hoped it would be.
Tom first encountered ELAHP when he worked on the Pine Street Inn outreach van in the early 1990's. For years, every night the van came across an elderly man named Charles roaming the streets, and every night they tried to convince him to give up the streets and accept housing. Read More...
The mission of the Elders Living At Home Program is to support elders in making the transition out of homeless, to provide supportive services that build on the individual abilities of elders and to help them overcome the barriers to permanent housing.
We make every effort to reach out to those most in need, including non-English-speaking elders and other marginalized individuals. We are committed to providing high-quality services in a respectful manner that will help each client reach his or her highest potential.
As we mark our 25th anniversary, we'd like give a special thanks to all of you who have supported this program. The most vulnerable men and women among us are safer, healthier and happier because of your support.
