Description: Emergency, Transitional and Long-Term Supportive Housing for Seniors

Referrals and Eligibility
Seniors come to the program through traditional homeless shelters, hospitals, Adult Protective Services and other community resources. Basic eligibility criteria are: age 55 and older; not a threat to self or others; ambulatory; and able to manage daily activities with minimal assistance.

How the Program Works
Because homelessness issues are different for seniors than for their younger counterparts, Samaritan Place provides not only shelter and nourishment but intensive case management focused on that population’s unique needs.

Samaritan Place offers both short-term shelter and transitional housing services, which allow the guest and his/her case worker the time needed for appropriate evaluation and arrangement of the best possible living situation and supportive services. Through our long-term supportive housing program, we are able to offer housing to some seniors for whom safe and affordable housing and support services cannot be secured in the broader community.

Program Goals
Samaritan Place focuses on the core outcomes of increased control, decreased vulnerability, access to resources and an improved support network. Our overarching goal is to help ensure that each guest is able to live in the most independent environment possible that still ensures their safety.
