Important Points from Research

• Homelessness is a reality that touches everyone in all parts of society.

• Homelessness is increasing among aging adults.

• We need to consider the actual needs of the individuals experiencing homelessness.

• We must devise more creative programs and strategies to address the unique challenges of an increasingly aging homeless population.

Every penny matters

Be a blessing to others in need. Please give generously to support our unique population of underserved homeless individuals, women age 55 and above. Often times, these women experience homelessness because of specific circumstances such as disability and/or divorce. They need a compassionate hand UP, not a hand-out.
