Dawn Olderr Montalvo has been caring for other people’s children most of her life. You helped find her a place to stay when she needed someone to take care of her for a change.
Senior Moments from H.O.M.E.
Your support ensures residents in our independent living apartments get homes that come with all the amenities.
Sometimes a little support is all it takes to keep our seniors self reliant. For Carol Ogden, 81, that support is the H.O.M.E. shopping bus.
Over the years the Rowes have turned to H.O.M.E. several times for upkeep and repair including weatherization, painting and, just this fall, a new hot water heater. Your support for that work means the inside of the Rowes’ house in the Rosemoor community on the South Side, where they live with their dog, Lucky, is just as warm as their marriage of 55 years.
As we prepare for Giving Tuesday again on December 3, 2019, we’re proud to share stories that demonstrate both the impact of your support and also the diversity of experiences among the seniors who have benefited from the generosity of our supporters.
Did you know that the first day of fall is a mere seven days away? Fall is a great season for exploring the outdoors, celebrating holidays, making new friends, and spending time with loved ones. It is also a wonderful time of year to volunteer and give back!
There seem to be some little known programs and resources out there for older adults living in Chicago that may be beneficial to some senior home owners to know about. We want to make sure you know about the tax rebate for senior home owners and the porch repair program.
