Senior Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH)
What do you do in your golden years when you are dependent on your loved ones, but they return love with abuse?
Where do you turn for compassion, safety and a helping hand?
Domestic Violence does not discriminate, and after seeing that our elders had nowhere to turn, TMWF decided to address this gap in services. The Senior Home opened in 2022 and provides a safe haven for senior women who have been abused, abandoned and neglected.
Client K came to TMWF seeking help a few years ago, her son would tell her not to worry — he loved her and he would always take care of her. Read K's story of strength and survival
Our Senior Program provides these women in crisis with access to our wrap-around services and allows them to live their remaining years with safety, dignity and peace rather than fear.
Elder Abuse impacts one in ten people age 60 and older in the U.S. *
Victims face the difficult choice of telling someone they are being hurt or continue to be abused by someone they care for deeply or depend upon. *
Increasing life expectancy indicates a growing need for services to support the needs of older survivors. *
