Fewer than 2% of Selfhelp's 1,400 housing residents transfer to nursing homes each year.
Last year alone, our social workers leveraged nearly $3.6 million in support for food, housing, transportation, and other life essentials for needy older adults.
Selfhelp cares for 4,300 Holocaust survivors annually, and 700 clients approach us each year for assistance for the very first time. Half of the approximately 55,000 survivors living in NYC are considered poor or near poor.
1800 home health aides provide more than 2 million hours of care to our clients. Our program trains over 450 aides a year.
