Gulfshore Business Daily – July 18, 2018 

Through its Golden Gate Senior Center, Collier Senior Resources (CSR) has launched the Direct Assistance Program for Needy Seniors. The program compliments CSR’s free services for seniors, filling in the gap for those most at-risk by providing one-time financial support to meet the most basic of human needs. To qualify, individuals must be 60 years of age or older and residents of Collier County living within 175 percent of the federal poverty level. The one-time financial assistance can be used for medical prescriptions and eyeglasses, utility shut-off notices, rent or mortgage payments, durable medical equipment, small appliances, gas cards, or additional items on a case-by-case basis.
