Press Release: SDSCF Announces Nearly $200,000 in Grants to Organizations Supporting Isolated Seniors Across the County
San Diego Seniors Community Foundation awarded grants to nine local nonprofits for programs that support isolated seniors during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In partnership with the Sahm Family Foundation, SDSCF is making COVID-19 response grants to senior centers and service providers to expand programs and pilot new ways to mitigate the harmful effects of social isolation.
As a stakeholder in the development of a more expansive and dynamic network of supports for older adults in our region, SDSCF submitted a policy recommendation to operationalize the Master Plan for Aging goals by investing in community senior centers.
At a time when more seniors than ever are socially isolated and cut off from their families with limited access to services, our regional senior support network has been kneecapped.
The senior center of the future will be a central hub for a community’s senior population, connecting older adults to vital resources that support healthy aging.
