We have the privilege of being part of an organization that is making a profound and positive impact on the lives of older adults. Here is just one person whose life was touched by the work we do.

"The Personal Advocate helped me realize the situation I was in was not my fault and coached me through solving it."

“The Personal Advocate helped me realize the situation I was in was not my fault and coached me through solving it.”

Rachel, 75, had been given a 30-day notice of a rent increase she could not afford. She was in a crisis situation but not alone, she called Elders in Action.   Together, she and our Personal Advocate, composed a letter to the management that explained her situation. 

 The wonderful outcome of this partnership is that the management of her existing apartment building agreed to extend her lease until she was accepted at a more affordable building. Rachel, assisted by her personal advocate, can now avoid the unexpected increase in living expenses and an uncertain future living situation.

 Older adults can sometimes be overpowered, overlooked and silenced. Elders in Action volunteers amplify the voice of those in need and ensure they are visible in a society that is often moving too fast to pay attention. When you support Elders in Action, you are making the concerns and hopes of older adults visible. With your help, Elders in Action is paying attention. 

 Please make a meaningful contribution towards our end-of-year goal of $10,000, to enable Elders in Action to keep paying attention to those who need it most.
