Connections for Seniors
To establish programs and provide supportive services to older adults in order to ensure growth, health, and well-being.
To empower seniors to overcome barriers to safe and affordable housing, and provide support services that help reduce risks to well-being and promote quality of life. We believe that all seniors have the right to feel safe, to feel healthy, and to make choices about their own lives.

CONNECTIONS FOR SENIORS
Emergency housing & support services
Connections for Seniors is in the business of changing lives.
The work we do is aimed at providing a holistic approach to
addressing barriers and challenges that are unique to older adults.
Through advocacy, outreach, and well-established community partnerships,
our team works tirelessly each day to support older adults in crisis, at-risk, or facing homelessness.
Connections for Seniors' message is one of hope and compassion.
We believe that a single action can make a tremendous
difference in the lives of individuals and in communities;
and that collective action can greatly impact the world.
"Aging is not 'lost youth' but a new stage of opportunity and strength."
