Stepping Up For Seniors
Stepping Up For Seniors is on the move! After successfully serving low-income seniors for many years in the Greater Phoenix Area, SUFS now proudly serves the Greater Portland Area as well. Below you'll find important facts about the low-income senior populations in the areas we serve.
Within Phoenix, over 80,000 Seniors are living in poverty. Another 200,000 are living at an income level that offers no safety net when an unexpected crisis occurs. Many of these individuals now find themselves without a family structure to depend on in time of need.
In Washington County, more than 10% of residents live below the poverty line. And in the Portland senior community alone, there are more than 7,500 seniors that live beneath the poverty line, often with no help or resources to find the stability and dignity they are in desperate need of.
