DOROT is an organization that strives to enhance the lives of the elderly in the greater New York metropolitan area. DOROT hosts over 35 programs and services for seniors, caregivers, volunteers, and professionals. One important service they provide is the Homelessness Prevention Program, a transitional residence in Manhattan. This location offers safe, temporary housing, meals, counseling, and assistance in finding a permanent home.
The program is available to seniors 60 or older who are homeless or facing homelessness. An interview with a DOROT social worker is required to qualify. If you know someone who can benefit from this information, or to find out more, call the Homelessness Prevention Program at (212) 666-2000.
