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.
