General information

Poverty Isn't Part of the American Dream But for a startling number of older Americans, it's a fact of life. Today, one in four adults 55 and older has trouble meeting one or more of their basic needs. Almost 9 million older Americans have yearly income below the poverty line ($10,830), face heartbreaking choices. Do they fill their prescriptions or fill their refrigerators? Pay the mortgage or heat their home? AARP Foundation is here to ensure that vulnerable, older Americans have the resources they need and the opportunities they deserve through community programs and services. At a time of record unemployment and hardship among the elderly poor, the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is the only program in the U.S. that provides community services and work-based training to low-income, unemployed older Americans age 55+. (In fact, 83 percent are 60+, and 27 percent are 70+.)
