Richmond Senior Services, Inc. promotes and provides housing and housing-related services for older persons, persons with physical disabilities, and developmentally disabled adults. Project S.H.A.R.E. (Senior Housing at Reduced Expense) has provided safe and affordable shared housing opportunities for over 28 years for low-income seniors and disabled persons. This program includes both agency-managed apartments in which three to four persons live cooperatively in a residence maintained by Richmond Senior Services, and housing in the homes of senior homeowners who are willing to share their homes for the benefits of companionship and financial contribution to the household. Both these opportunities are viable options in the ever-increasing costs of the rental market. The Access to Home program provides home modifications to low-income disabled persons to allow them safe access in, out and throughout their homes. The addition of ramps, lifts, visual acuity and other modifications assures their full access to their community and needed services, and helps them to remain at home rather than in an institution. The Senior Repair Program is a home repair service that offers minor health and safety related home repairs for seniors and disabled persons. This program covers the small, but otherwise costly, repairs that seniors cannot complete themselves due to lack of income or physical capabilities. Hundreds of repairs are completed each year. Our advocacy, information and referral, entitlement counseling and application assistance also assist seniors and disabled persons in maintaining their independence in the community by accessing all possible services, including housing, adult education, emergency food supplies, and other housing repair services. A senior food pantry provides emergency food to seniors and disabled persons each month who are experiencing difficulty in meeting household expenses. Recipients of the food supplies also receive pre-screening for food stamps, entitlement screenings, housing and job counseling, case assistance and information and referral. The program encourages a nutritionally sound diet, while also alleviating some demands upon their financial resources.
