Help us create supervised independent housing which provides a secure SOLUTION for many seniors who cannot afford full rent, but may be able to pay for a portion. Think of it as "Golden Girls" style arrangement where several senior residents live together in a single house. Going above and beyond HUD and government housing by creating resources, referrals, and supervision which will promote healthy independent living, activities, amenities and maintenance needs.
Giving OPTIONS to seniors will help them not miss out on benefits that could help them cover food, housing, medication and other expenses because they are not aware of support programs for which they qualify, the Delia Foundation will work with seniors and veterans to discover resources and opportunities they may not have been aware of.
