Senior Advocates of the Desert


Senior Advocates of the Desert is the Coachella Valley’s only nonprofit social service organization dedicated exclusively to helping low-income seniors obtain the government benefits to which they are entitled, but have been unable to access on their own. The assistance we provide often results in a livable income, food in the kitchen, a safe comfortable place to live, full healthcare benefits and in-home help that keeps seniors out of hospitals and nursing homes. This also benefits our community as a whole and reduces the burdens on organizations such as food banks, emergency rooms and shelters. We also provide emergency financial assistance to qualifying low-income seniors who, through no fault of the their own, find themselves in a financial crisis. This is a service greatly needed and under-served here in the Coachella Valley and we feel fortunate, as the recipient of several grants, to be able to help seniors in need.
