  • Northgate II Wellness Program Holiday 2016 Update

    There’s no place like home, especially during the holiday season. This festive time of year brings to light a sad reality: many older adults who would like to “age in place” are unable to do so, particularly if they are low-income minorities. The main issue isn’t just affordable housing, it’s also the lack of social services. Assisted living, the housing of choice for middle- and upper-income seniors, is rarely an option for the poor. But Fair Share Support Services, the social services arm of FSHD, is at the forefront of the movement to change this situation. Our wellness program at Northgate II in Camden has received widespread media attention as well as grant support because our innovative work integrating social services support with affordable housing has provided a model that is being replicated by other nonprofits across the nation.
