Meet Harold, Richard, and Elaine. Like millions of older Americans, they depend on vital public programs to survive. However, with services like job training and placement, affordable housing, and meals programs on the chopping block, they live one bad break away from poverty, homelessness, and hunger. Help us tell Congress to stop cutting programs for vulnerable seniors.

Visit http://OneAway.org to send a message to Congress or tell us your story of struggle. Your stories help us educate Washington leaders about the struggles faced by millions of older adults!
