DOROT's Homelessness Prevention Program featured in the New York Times
Date:11/9/2019

On Monday, DOROT was featured in a New York Times “Neediest Cases” column. It shares the story of a retired and disabled 64-year-old New Yorker who recently faced homelessness. A call to 311 eventually connected her with DOROT, and our Homelessness Prevention Program moved her into transitional housing until she found a new home in an assisted-living facility in Brooklyn.

DOROT alleviates social isolation among the elderly and provides services to help them live independently. Our Homelessness Prevention Program and Aftercare Program (HPP) help low-income seniors break the cycle of homelessness, reconnect them to the community, and ease social isolation.

The HPP and Aftercare Program provide lifelong support, including ongoing counseling, communal meals and holiday celebrations, and material support such as food, clothing, and cash assistance, to ensure that these vulnerable individuals never become homeless again. The seniors HPP serves represent NYC’s most vulnerable older adult population. HPP provides them with a warm and caring community, through engagement of volunteers and programs that builds new social connections and reduces loneliness.
