Helpful Resources for Seniors Navigating the Housing Process
Our Housing with Hope Team does all we can to connect local seniors with the support they need to live with dignity. And so we also value the opportunity to connect older adults with programs and resources that provide for their health, safety, basic needs, and need for connection.
Below you’ll find a set of resources that your older loved ones may need.
American Association of Retired Persons (AARP)
AARP is an organization that advocates for the issues that matter to individuals over 50 and their families. The organization focuses on providing an array of services and resources related to travel, restaurants, and volunteer opportunities as well as financial tools and health insight to older adults across the country.
Low-Income Home Energy Assistance
Services provided through the Home Energy Assistance Program allows low-income residents to receive assistance with their home cooling and heating bills, emergency heating services, and emergency fuel assistance in accordance with the Home Energy Assistance Program. The program does its part to ensure seniors stay warm in the depths of winter and cool in the sweltering summer months.
New Jersey Easy Access, Single Entry (NJ EASE)
This guide provides information for seniors on Area Agencies on Aging that can connect older adults with a variety of resources to support their personal dignity in daily living. These agencies provide resources and assistance to seniors across the state.
Union County Transportation for Seniors
Union County’s older adult transportation program offers curb-to-curb transportation for senior citizens ages 60 and older. From grocery shopping to pharmacy trips, it’s a vital service that helps seniors get where they need to be without worrying about driving themselves.
Union County – Division on Aging
This wide-reaching organization provides support for Union County residents who wish to access helpful resources and programs including legal help, employment, counseling, education financial assistance, home care, and assistance with daycare. These services act as a lifeline connecting seniors to resources they need day to day and provide the support they need to thrive in their golden years.
Union County – Adult Protective Service (Catholic Charities)
Adult Protective Services works to decrease the risk of further abuse, neglect, or exploitation for adults and seniors. In Union County, this service, provided by Catholic Charities, is dedicated to ensuring our seniors do not endure undeserved hardship or abuse at the hands of those they interact with each day.
At Housing with Hope, we often receive questions about the resources we offer. Below you’ll find some of those questions and information you need to know.
Do you offer in-home assistance for older adults or provide assisted housing for seniors?
No. We do not offer those services. But feel free to reach out to us as we may be able to assist you in locating the right housing opportunity for your senior loved one.
Do you assist only older adults in New Jersey?
At this time we only serve our local New Jersey seniors. This allows us to become intimately familiar with their unique needs as well as the state laws here in the Garden State that impact seniors directly.
I have resources to share. How do you determine which resources to include on your website?
