SilverSource, the nonprofit agency providing services and resources for older adults in the Stamford area, received a $50,000 grant from the John H. & Ethel G. Noble Charitable Trust. The funding will be used to support the organization’s Individual Assistance: Housing Stability Program in 2022.
SilverSource’s Housing Stability Program provides financial assistance, counseling and advocacy to address urgent needs and keep older adults in their homes, including eviction prevention, help with utility payments, and other supports that allow seniors to age in place safely.
According to SilverSource CEO Kathleen Bordelon, the goal of the program is for older neighbors to avoid homelessness, transition to more affordable housing and achieve economic stability. Last year, the SilverSource social work team assisted hundreds of older adults with emergency housing stability and safety issues through the Individual Assistance Program, and managed thousands of cases in support of seniors in need.
“Our program helps older adults maintain their livable, safe housing, and reduces the risk of homelessness due to financial insecurity,” added Bordelon. “With this support we can provide even more of Stamford’s low-income seniors with financial assistance so they can age in place safely in their homes.”
This is the fourth grant that SilverSource has received from the Noble Trust.
