In conjunction with May’s designation as ‘Older Americans Month’, Town & Country FCU announced a significant contribution of $3,500 to Southern Maine Agency on Aging in support of its Elder Homelessness Prevention Program, a pilot project from SMAA.

The initiative is aimed at helping people throughout York and Cumberland counties find affordable housing, access resources and support to ensure they are not evicted, and help move into long term care facilities, if needed.

Megan Walton, CEO of Southern Maine Agency on Aging, explained, “Town & Country’s $3,500 contribution will provide approximately 70 hours of case management support and help us help older adults find or maintain safe, stable housing.  In addition, this gift will support further partnership work with other senior service providers locally who are working on these issues so that SMAA can be more coordinated and aligned in our efforts to tackle homelessness. The gap between affordable housing production and eligible, low-income older adults in need of housing is growing rapidly so this contribution comes at a critical time. SMAA greatly appreciates the support from Town & Country for our critical work in helping older adults facing a housing crisis.”
