Senior Moments from H.O.M.E.
"When I lost my apartment and I needed help...you guys were my angels on earth."
Like most older adults who move, Denise needed to find a new apartment by necessity. When she needed help with the process, she was able to turn to H.O.M.E. because donors like you support our Moving Program.
Today's guest blogger is Marnie Dawson, SMM -c of Dawson Relocation Services. Marnie is a certified senior move manager, and trusted friend of H.O.M.E. Today she offers some of her pro-tips for seniors planning a move.
“It was so hard on me. I’d lived in that house since I was 9-going-on-10.”
Bernadette recently moved from her family home where she’d lived since 1962. She said she couldn’t have done it without help.
"Thank you and Judy. Never will forget this.”
Sharon was so grateful for our help moving into an affordable senior building.
This year, Sharon was one of many seniors who moved safely into her new home with H.O.M.E.'s Moving Program.
Last April H.O.M.E. restarted our Moving Program with funding provided by The Retirement Research Foundation and The Field Foundation. Their funds have allowed us to provide help for seniors moving in Chicago at a rate of about one move per week.
