MISSION & VISION
Our mission at the Senior Assistance Center is to promote the self-sufficiency of all senior citizens in Colorado, to ensure that no senior citizen goes without the necessities of life, including food, shelter, and public service.
SAC HELPS DESPERATE MAN.
I am currently unemployed. It gets frustrating doing applications online. It seems that prospective employers do not want to take the time to meet one in person. I’m getting so tired now, it feels like I have the whole universe on my shoulders. At times I want to cry, but I don’t. I don’t like asking for help, but I don’t want to be without utilities for my daughter’s welfare. I have thought of just running away thinking she might be better off than having me- a worthless father who can’t provide for her needs. There are times when I feel like ending my life thinking everyone would be better off without me around. Not sure what stops me if there is a God, why has he forsaken me. What have I done so wrong? Any way, to all involved I thank you and may God bless you.
SAC helped this gentleman pay his utilities bill, helped him with a referral to AARP senior work program, made sure he had a emergency bag of food, and gave him a return bus ticket to the Denver area. SAC works to help in many ways.
ON SITE FOOD BANK
We have had an onsite Food Bank helping Seniors for over 34 years. Each Thursday between 10:00 AM – 12:00PM the Senior Assistance Center provides a self-select supplemental food bank.
MOBILE FOOD BANK
Our mobile food bank volunteers & staff distribute food to homebound seniors. We transport food goods weekly to over 125 seniors living in affordable senior housing complexes. Our goal for 2015 is to expand our service to over 500 seniors weekly.
There are times in everyone’s lives when they are in need of financial assistance. Due to the rising cost of utilities it is easy to understand how one can fall behind on bills. If you are a senior that is faced with a disconnection notice or if you have fallen behind on your bill, we can help.
Do you have an old car, truck, or motorcycle that you’re not using any more? By donating your unwanted vehicle to the Senior Assistance Center you will receive a great tax deduction while providing a significant donation in support of our programs.
The Senior Assistance Center is partnering with Driven to Donate, operated by Step 13, a nationally-recognized recovery program in downtown Denver that offers men the opportunity to overcome drug and/or alcohol addiction through a program that requires sobriety, work, and accountability. The men at Step 13 help process donated vehicles, providing them with the dignity of work, while they work hard to maximize the value of each donated vehicle.
Donating our vehicle could not be easier. The program includes free towing, and any vehicles, whether they are running or not, are gratefully accepted. You will receive all required forms to claim the tax deduction for the sale price of your vehicle.
You can donate your vehicle online by visiting DriventoDonate.org or by calling 303-296-9020.
Thank you for your support of the Senior Assistance Center.
Sacred Heart House of Denver
We would like to thank Sacred Heart House of Denver http://www.sacredhearthouse.org for their ongoing support of the Senior Assistance Center. We have been benefiting from their generous donations of food and toiletry items for the last 2 years. It is truly an honor and a privilege to work together with another nonprofit and continue to help our vulnerable clients.
SAC provides help!
Due to my fixed income and higher demands for payments on Excel bill within the year, we needed help before and after our disconnect notices. As we age, we are limited and barely making ends meet. However, with programs such as this it helps us sleep better at night. We try and try to continue to survive as prices continue to explode on us elders. Once again thank you. My friend is the one who heard about this program through church and suggested that I come to you. I worried to come, but I needed to get some help before winter comes. Thank God for prayers way before now and thank you as well. My husband had a stroke, and also has cancer and this help will really lessen the stress he already bears. Thank you. R
Senior Couple Receiving Much needed help from SAC!
My husband is no longer able to work since he was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia. He has applied for SSDI and also SSI but everything is pending. He only receives $189.00 per month and has no other income. His mother passed away a few months ago, and we had to pay for her funeral. I have been so upset about my husband that I entered my Social Security check into the register of my check book twice! I have had over $300.00 in returned check fees! (Including one for Xcel Energy!) We have never had to ask for help, but now I feel like we have no choice. I applied for food stamps, but we earn $23.00 a month too much for help. My neighbor told me about Senior Assistance Center, and I’m so glad she did. Josie
