PILT supports formerly unhoused seniors living in PATH San Diego's two Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) sites dedicated to seniors, Trinity Place and Ivy. Seventy-three residents live in Trinity Place while Ivy is home to 52 seniors. Even though many of them receive government subsidies such as food stamps, the increased cost of food and other items makes it difficult for them to purchase items that need day-to-day such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, socks, etc.
According to a survey conducted by Serving Seniors, the number of seniors experiencing homelessness is expected to increase (see article below).
If you are able to donate grocery store gift cards, new or gently used clothing items, fuzzy slippers/socks, non-perishable food items or anything else that you think might be useful to seniors, please contact us. SDPATHVolunteer3@ePath.org
