Seniors Housing Collaborative

The Seniors Housing Collaborative (SHC) is working to shift policy and practice so low-income seniors can age in the right place with appropriate services and strong networks. Since launching last fall, membership has grown to 20 people, including housing and service providers, municipal representatives, and six seniors with diverse perspectives on the rental landscape.

Their focus has been on identifying policy priorities to work on in the year(s) ahead. Over the course of three meetings, they homed in on two categories:

  • Service provision: Information, referral, outreach, and navigation; wraparound support; social connectivity; and housing transitions; and
  • Government housing policy: Accessibility, safety, and emergency response; housing supply; and housing quality
