Housing Opportunities & Maintenance for the Elderly, Inc.
August 16, 2011
H.O.M.E. provides essentials housing services to older adults in the Chicagoland area. As a former staff member there, I met so many individuals and families with stories to share of where they had been and where they might have been if H.O.M.E. hadn't come into their lives. H.O.M.E.'s intergenerational living model, in which younger adults live and help to prepare meals and assist older adults living in the same building is truly inspirational and enriching. Unfortunately, due to it's small size and the tremendous need of their clientele, H.O.M.E. tends to give far more than they receive and as such, are fiercely in need of support. If you're seeking to support a small organization with enormous heart, look to H.O.M.E.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The individuals H.O.M.E has helped--many were homeless, or on the brink of homelessness, and had suffered great losses, and H.O.M.E. helped them to thrive.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Get them more funding! There are not nearly enough individuals to meet the ever increasing need.
