Governor DeSantis and First Lady Casey DeSantis Recently Announced Plans for Additional Funding to Rebuild Homes
Governor DeSantis and First Lady Casey DeSantis recently announced plans for additional funding to rebuild homes damaged by Hurricane Ian and address unmet needs in the community. Senior Resource Alliance is proud to be one of the nonprofits selected to receive funds to continue to help impacted seniors in our community get back on their feet.
For the last several months, we’ve collaborated with community partners to connect seniors with food, shelter, transportation, legal assistance and more. These additional funds will allow us continue to provide relief to the elders in our community who are still grappling with the effects of Hurricane Ian and the devastation it brought.
We’re grateful for their support and commitment to rebuilding our community and restoring the lives of its seniors. Read more about the Florida Disaster Fund:

Department of Elder Affairs
Florida is home to nearly 5.2 million residents age 60 and older and currently ranks first in the nation for the 65+ populations. As our senior population continues to increase, Florida’s future is linked to the financial, health, and physical security of our elder population.
The Department of Elder Affairs provides most direct services through its Division of Statewide Community-Based Services, which, in Central Florida, works through Senior Resource Alliance and local service providers to deliver essential services to this vital segment of the population. The Department of Elder Affairs also directly administers a wide range of programs, ranging from the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program, Office of Public and Professional Guardians, and Communities for a Lifetime to SHINE (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders) and CARES (Comprehensive Assessment and Review for Long-Term Care Services).
