UTILITIES ASSISTANCE

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.

Top 10 Reasons to Support the Senior Assistance Center

  • 10. The Senior Assistance Center has been serving seniors for over 35 years. Many people say that we are a cornerstone of the Northwest Denver community.
  • 9. Each Thursday our food bank, located at 2839 West 44th Ave., serves nearly 200 people.
  • 8. Our clothing bank is a great place for men and women to get something new and seasonally appropriate for their wardrobe. We have also expanded our inventory so people can also find household items, books, and videos.
  • 7. When there is a need for medical equipment that can help a senior recover from a medical emergency or illness, the Senior Assistance Center is there to lend the item free of charge and for as long as needed.
  • 6. Many of our seniors rely exclusively on public transportation to get to appointments, work, and activities. The Senior Assistance Center is able to provide bus tokens or reduced monthly bus passes.
  • 5. Our friendly visitors are a breath of sunshine for seniors who are shut-in. The friendly visitors are there routinely and provide a helping hand, listening ear and a sense of security for people living alone.
  • 4. Our mobile food banks go out to senior housing complexes and set up a market of fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy products and canned goods. This helps “the hidden hungry” in our community routinely access healthy food.
  • 3. The Senior Assistance Center is able to offer free tickets to many cultural and fun events in Denver. The tickets are used by seniors who want to be entertained and included. As one senior put it “I look forward to the events, they make me feel alive!”
  • 2. Our staff and volunteers are truly the heart of our organization. Each day they help seniors get back on track and thrive. We do important work at the Senior Assistance Center.

Never in my wildest dreams….

Desperate man on Park Bench

Never in my wildest dream did I think I would be the homeless man on the park bench!  Yet here I am.  I am so scared that I only sleep during the day.  I walk at night.  I feel so vulnerable! Sometimes I am lucky enough to get into a shelter.  Mothers shush their children when they see me, and often cross the street.  I love kids.  I spent my entire working life teaching 6th grade in one of Denver’s Elementary Schools.  I made some investments that crashed along with the economy.  I’ve lost my family, my home, my self-respect.  I get my social security check, but it’s not enough to pay a deposit on an apartment.  Sometimes I will get a motel room for the night so that I can shower and do my laundry.  Please don’t get me wrong.  I’m not an alcoholic or a drug addict.

“I am so grateful to the Senior Assistance Center for their weekly foodbanks.  I am able to select fresh fruits, vegetables and dairy products.  Right now I am helping to raise my two young grandchildren so having this food in my refrigerator is a Godsend.  I realize now I am needed in Denver so Florida is no longer part of my plan – the Senior Assistance Center is!”

Note for help on doorLittle notes on my Door

When I moved into Senior Housing last December I realized that many of my new neighbors didn’t drive, so I let everyone know that I worked at the Senior Assistance Center and that I could assist them by bringing food to home for them from our Thursday food bank.   I think everyone was slightly embarrassed by my offer – most seniors are proud people and it is difficult to take what they consider a handout.

A few days later, I got a little note on my apartment door written in shaky, but perfect penmanship.  “I am really hungry.  I had to pay some unexpected bills this month and I paid for them with my food money.  Can you find it in your heart to share some food from the Senior Assistance Center, please?”  The note was not signed.  I set out a bag of canned food, cereal, powdered milk and some paper supplies by my door the same evening.  I put a note in the bag asking the person to please let others know to leave a note on my door if they needed any food.  Continue Reading this Testimonial
