Mission Statement:

To provide extra help to older adults with limited income in Bernalillo County with the vision of helping to create a community in which older adults live in safety and comfort.

Primary Programs:

Emergency Utility Assistance for low-income and in-crisis older adults 60+ years of age.
Home Repair and Retrofit in collaboration with CABQ/Bernalillo County Dept of Senior Affairs: minor home repairs, wheelchair ramps, grab-bars and other in-home safety equipment.

Other Programs:

Food Pantry: because so many of SH's Utility Assistance clients are in such dire financial need, SH applied to become an associate agency of Roadrunner Food Bank. We now also provide a box of food to utility assistance applicants. We also provide monthly food boxes to the residents of the low-income, senior housing complex near our offices focusing especially on fresh produce.
Senior Hall of Fame: each year recognizes 4 older adults 65+ years of age for their lifetimes of community service. Since 1983 about 100 individuals have been inducted. Their portraits are on permanent display in the Albuquerque Convention Center and on our website.
Holiday Parties and Gifts for low-income seniors in the 9 public housing facilities for seniors and the disabled and also for the shut-ins living in 9 care-homes. Last year SH arranged for 18 different facilities to be adopted by companies, groups or individuals that provided holiday cheer during the month of December.
Senior Assistance Fairs (SAF): in collaboration with PNM's Good Neighbor Fund we stage quarterly SAFs to provide one-stop opportunities for senior to explore aid possibilities from multiple helping agencies. SH provides screening for electric, gas, propane and water assistance while GNF provides electric.
