Secure Seniors

Secure Seniors is a short-term financial stabilization program that provides financial education, case management support and one-on-one coaching to our most vulnerable elders who are facing significant and immediate financial challenges.  The primary goal of Secure Seniors is to financially stabilize 90+% of the participating at-risk senior clients. Through program interventions, the $ecure $eniors program hopes to improve the financial stability of its clients, helping them successfully meet their financial goals such as creating and maintaining a budget, reducing debt and increasing savings to help prevent future crisis. It is our hope that the $ecure $eniors program interventions will also increase participants’ access to affordable healthcare and housing and help them maintain and improve positive mental health.
