My career has been dedicated to helping aging individuals remain in their homes and communities, despite changes to their health and functioning, because I believe we should support each others pursuit of a fulfilling life. Sadly, low income seniors living in San Francisco are in trouble. Many elders report some level of housing crisis that put them at risk of not being able to remain in their home. In most cases they are unable to afford to make necessary modifications to their homes in order to remain there safely because they must choose to purchase food and medicine over paying for housing repairs and modifications. I am so happy to be working with Rebuilding Together San Francisco because I am able to see the impact that dedicated community volunteers can make in the lives of frail seniors and low income families!! It restores my faith in community.
