This paper highlights six diverse projects and approaches that address local communities’ need for housing and services for vulnerable older adults. Each of the models target different groups of vulnerable seniors and utilize a mixture of the funding sources along with other creative policy measures such as changes to zoning laws or money from Medicaid demonstration projects.
While these projects are local in nature and none will offer a “silver bullet” solution to the complex causes and effects of senior homelessness and housing instability, each presents a promising model that could be replicated across the country as part of larger strategic efforts to end and prevent homelessness for our society’s most vulnerable members.
