Catholic Charities aims to reduce the effects of isolation in seniors by empowering them to engage in meaningful activities in our community.
Senior programs are available to strengthen our most vulnerable and isolated seniors and also engage our seniors in meaningful activities.
Programs available to isolated low-income seniors:
Adopt-A-Senior – Companionship volunteers visit isolated seniors to create meaningful relationships, assess needs, and provide resources.
Project Hope – On the first Monday of the month, volunteers distribute a two-week food stipend to low-income seniors.
Project Cool – Free box fans are provided to senior citizens in an effort to prevent heat-related illness and death during the hot summer months. Visit the Project Cool page by clicking here to learn more.
Programs are also available to active seniors interested in helping us help others:
Foster Grandparents Program (FGP) – Foster Grandparents are role models and mentors that provide one-on-one tutoring and/or mentoring at various schools and other educational organizations in San Antonio.
Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) – RSVP is a volunteer program which recruits and engages seniors aged 55 and over to use their skills, talents, and experience to help address a wide range of community needs at a national level.
