Catholic Charities aims to reduce the effects of isolation in seniors by empowering them to engage in meaningful activities in our community.

Senior programs are available to strengthen our most vulnerable and isolated seniors and also engage our seniors in meaningful activities.

Programs available to isolated low-income seniors:

Adopt-A-Senior – Volunteers are paired with isolated seniors to provide basic needs and companionship.

Project Hope – On the first Monday of the month, volunteers distribute a two-week food stipend to low-income seniors.

Project Cool – Free box fans are provided to senior citizens in an effort to prevent heat-related illness and death during the hot summer months. Visit the Project Cool page by clicking here to learn more.

Programs are also available to active seniors interested in helping us help others:

Foster Grandparents Program (FGP) – Foster Grandparents are seniors over the age of 55 who provide one-on-one tutoring and/or mentoring at various schools and education organizations in San Antonio. Call (210) 242-3129 for more information!

Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) – RSVP is a volunteer program which recruits and engages seniors over the age of 55 to use their skills, talent, and experience to address a wide range of community needs at the national level.
