Success Stories

John's Success Story

The Sacramento Senior Safe House serves as a comfortable and healing atmosphere for abused and neglected seniors. HCD’s funding helped build this safe haven for seniors who are recovering from real-life nightmares.

John is one of those seniors. He was hospitalized after being beaten so badly that he lost his sight in one eye.
Before Sacramento Senior Safe House was created, John and other abused seniors like him would have been placed in less-than- ideal temporary quarters like motels or hospitals, and may have continued to be dependent on those who had abused them.

 “Everything got a lot better when I came here. I didn’t have to worry anymore,” says John. After their physical wounds have healed, vulnerable seniors are able to mend psychologically in the loving refuge of Sacramento Senior Safe House, funded in part by HCD.
