Silver Horizons continues to help as many seniors as possible, not only with free groceries that are home delivered or distributed via our Senior Food Markets, but perhaps more importantly, with our Household Bill Assistance and Minor Home Repairs programs.
During this unprecedented time of economic shutdown, lost wages, and increasing grocery costs, we are seeing more and more senior-led households struggling. About 40% of these households involve seniors raising their grandchildren. Now you have two generations struggling together. Our goal is to keep seniors, and their families, feeling safe and secure, and in their own homes.
Most of the seniors we serve would say that without Silver Horizons they would not have enough food to eat. Many would say that without Silver Horizons they would have to leave their homes because of changing health needs that make their current home unsafe, or because they simply cannot afford their basic household expenses.
