Improving Quality of Life and Preventing Homelessness
Since its inception in 1986, the Elders Living at Home Program has primarily focused on improving the quality of life of vulnerable elders and preventing homelessness. While the program has expanded into Emergency Shelter and helping homeless elders find housing, stabilization remains at the program's core.
The stabilization component of this program involves our providing wraparound supportive services to elders with a history of homelessness and those whose chronic disabilities put them at risk for losing their housing and becoming homeless.
