Make a Positive Impact On Our Seniors
The work of Fort Bend Seniors raises the spirits of all those involved, from the grateful seniors we serve to our dedicated volunteers and supporters. Without us, many seniors could go hungry; they would not have transportation to senior centers and many would face social isolation. Assisted living facilities and nursing homes are too expensive for many seniors, and many of these seniors have no relatives. We see the impact of our work every day through the overwhelming expression of gratitude on the faces of those we serve.
DEMAND FOR SERVICES ARE GROWING
Over the next five years, we anticipate a significant increase in demand for our services. Data indicates that the number of older Americans will double between 2010 and 2030. In addition, a greater proportion of seniors in Fort Bend and Waller counties are below the poverty level than are families in the general population. According to The George Foundation, the population of Fort Bend County residents over age 65 is growing at 7 percent and is expected to increase. Now, more than ever, our services are crucial.
