Our seniors live on average incomes of $233 per week ($316 per week for couples). These seniors struggle to afford such necessities as food, clothing, transportation, prescriptions, mortgage payment or rent, home repair and medical care.
Direct Services to Seniors
From June 1, 2017—May 31, 2018, 1534 seniors were served through St. Andrew’s Charitable Foundation with services from St. Andrew’s Senior Solutions.
These seniors, financially insecure, have limited family and resources and are intimidated by the services available to them. Our services, provided at no cost, help them obtain the resources and guidance they need to thrive as a senior in today’s society.
Because of our donors, these seniors have been afforded the opportunity to remain living safely, independently and healthy in their homes.
From June 1, 2017—May 31, 2018, over $1.1 million dollars was raised to support our charitable programs.
These donations came from individuals, corporations, grants and foundations. The annual Ageless Remarkable Saint Louisans Gala, held in October, raised 37% of these funds from individuals and corporations.
Our donors are appreciated for their continued support of the gala, as well as Celebrate Summer, our Annual Campaign and Memorials and Tributes.
With the support of our donors, we are making a difference in the lives of those who have made such a difference in ours.
