BENEFITING: Experience Works, Inc.
Many older people like your parents, grandparents, neighbors, and friends worry every day about how they are going to make ends meet.
You may encounter elders in the grocery store or at the bus stop who are suffering in silence because they are afraid or have too much pride to ask family members and neighbors for help. Savings and social security are not always enough to cover the cost of basic needs. They often go without – or make difficult choices - between food, medicine, and staying warm in the winter and cool in the summer. For some, the problems are even more severe – they find themselves homeless in their 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s.
Experience Works helps bring back dignity of older people by giving them an opportunity to work, earn a wage, and make a difference in their community. In rural remote areas, suburbia, or cities across the country, older people who are struggling and vulnerable come to us desperate and destitute. Our staff listen to their challenges, hopes, and dreams and help them create a path to a better future so they can age with dignity, purpose, and renewed self-esteem. As the numbers of aging baby boomers grow with each passing day, our services are needed more than ever.
