Minimizing barriers in obtaining Benefits and Entitlements by providing advocacy, supportive counseling, information and referrals on behalf of seniors."

The Bronx is home to over 42,000 persons over age 65 living at or below the Federal poverty level. Many more are living "on the edge" of poverty. While there are many forms of assistance to help older persons, there are also barriers that prevent eligible individuals from receiving this help, language barriers, lack of awareness and knowledge of the bureaucratic system all serve as barriers to participation. SHOPP's SNAP services are aimed at minimizing these barriers by providing older persons and their families increased access to benefits and entitlements. Also provided are supportive counseling, information and referral and advocacy on behalf of clients to other programs and services. SNAP caseworkers screen and assist clients to ensure they receive such benefits as Social Security, SSI, Medicaid, Medicare Part D, Food Stamps, home care., HEAP, SCRIE, and other eligible entitlements and services.

 

Services are offered at seven off-site locations as well.
