Since its launch in 2004, the Senior Citizen Program has assisted over 1000 seniors with a variety of issues. ENF provides walk-in assistance to senior citizens on issues such as, unfair evictions, tenant’s rights, Section 8, Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemptions (SCRIE), and Medicare etc. We also coordinate local activities that will stimulate senior involvement, such as social events where seniors can interact with each other and a six-week computer class for those who want to become more computer savvy.
Individuals who are unable to receive services at our location because of a disability will be offered the opportunity to receive services off site at their residence. In the event that a client is unable to travel, a housing specialist will be assigned as a case manager. The case manager will be required to visit the client’s home and provide similar assistance that will be offered at our office.
The senior related services that are provided by ENF are available in several different languages, Spanish, French and Creole. We can effectively communicate and provide counseling and educational materials in these languages.
