Please join SCG, Funders Together to End Homelessness – Los Angeles, and the Funders Aging Network for a discussion on LA's growing senior population and their vulnerability for homelessness, as well as those already experiencing homelessness.

Private funders who focus on seniors, health, housing, and homelessness are especially encouraged to attend.

As housing becomes less affordable and healthcare costs rise, more adults are aging into poverty and the general population of housed seniors is at high risk of housing instability.

In this session, panelists will share the needs and vulnerabilities of seniors experiencing homelessness and the unique needs of special populations such as women. Together we'll explore opportunities for prevention and connect the dots between homelessness, affordable housing, and health care.

Speakers will also highlight the need for coordinated, intentional, and collaborative advocacy between senior services and housing.

The simple fact of aging presents enormous challenges to the community safety net. Across the country 10,000 people turn 65 every day. It is estimated that homelessness among seniors will more than double in the next 30 years and economic data indicates that almost half of seniors today live at incomes below 200% of the poverty level.

We hope you can join us for this important conversation.
