Can you imagine living on less than $900 a month? New Mexico is the second highest ranked state in the nation for senior hunger. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, one out of every seven Bernalillo County seniors live below the poverty level. Too many of New Mexico’s seniors are living in poverty, and the numbers of seniors in need continues to rise as Baby Boomers age.
Since 1979, Silver Horizons has been a reliable community resource for low-income seniors, their families and caregivers, who are looking for help with household bill assistance to help pay mounting bills, help with minor home repairs, and a source of free groceries for seniors, along with personal hygiene items, to help keep our loved ones healthy and fed.
As a caring advocate for our community’s aging adults, Silver Horizons provides services to seniors from Santa Fe to Belen. In addition to providing much needed services and resources to low-income and at-risk seniors in Bernalillo, Sandoval, Santa Fe and Valencia counties, Silver Horizons has built trusted relationships with numerous support agencies and businesses in New Mexico, and can help navigate seniors to resources to meet ever-growing and ever-changing needs.
