Homelessness Prevention Program

For more than 30 years, DOROT has helped older adults recover from homelessness, get back on their feet, and remain stably housed. Our Homelessness Prevention Program (HPP) is a transitional housing residence that provides short-term housing, meals and social services, along with relocation assistance. A unique component of our model is the Aftercare Program—which fosters a supportive community and provides clients with ongoing services after they’ve moved into permanent housing, thereby preventing returns to homelessness.

Both residents and Aftercare clients enjoy a range of socializing opportunities and activities, including shared dinners, activities and group outings. Clients remain engaged in meaningful ways, building a community where one did not exist previously. DOROT volunteers are an integral part of the program and enhance the services provided.

HPP assistance is available to individuals aged 60+ who are homeless or who are facing homelessness. Individuals must be willing to share a room and to work actively with DOROT staff on securing permanent housing. An interview with a DOROT social worker is required.
