Can you imagine living on less than $25 a day? About 85 percent of Silver Horizons’ clients are living on less than $750 a month. New Mexico is the second highest ranked state in the nation for senior hunger. And, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, one out of every seven Bernalillo Country seniors live below the poverty level. Too many of New Mexico’s seniors are living in poverty, and the numbers of seniors in need continues to rise as Baby Boomers age.
Silver Horizons is the reliable community resource for seniors, their families and caregivers, who are looking for help with home repairs and safety modifications, utility assistance to help pay mounting utility bills, and nutritious food distribution, along with personal hygiene items, to help keep our loved ones healthy and fed.
As an advocate for our community’s aging adults, Silver Horizons provides services to seniors in the greater Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Belen and Los Lunas area. In addition to providing much needed services and resources to low-income and at-risk seniors in Bernalillo, Sandoval and Valencia counties, Silver Horizons has built trusted relationships with numerous support agencies and businesses in New Mexico and can help navigate you to resources to meet your needs.
