Boston Senior Home Care Hosts Anniversary Celebration and Fundraiser to Increase Supportive Housing Programs for Boston’s Low Income Seniors

Boston Senior Home Care (BSHC) will host its Annual Celebration and Fundraiser on Wednesday, November 7, 2012 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 the Fairmont Copley Plaza, Boston. The event will feature a live and silent auction, hors d’oeuvres with a cash bar, and music by Jazz in the Air. The goal for the event is to raise $100,000 dollars to increase the number of Supportive Housing programs in the City of Boston. Several State and City officials, members of the BSHC Board of Directors, staff and numerous business partners who work on behalf of BSHC consumers are expected to be in attendance.

Boston Senior Home Care hopes that its Annual Celebration and Fundraiser will continue to raise awareness for its home care services and special programs, as well as funding to help increase the number of Supportive Housing Programs in the City of Boston. This program was created to support elders and disabled individuals who live in low income apartment buildings, where there are little or no support services, activities, or even a community meal site. The Supportive Housing program provides on-site case management, health and safety checks, and most importantly many opportunities for the building residents to socialize with each other and to feel less alone.
