Connections for Seniors, a non-profit agency in St. John’s, provides temporary shelter and supportive services for older men, older women, or older couples who are 55 years of age and older and facing homelessness or in crisis.
They help seniors navigate complex systems linked to health, housing, legal, and financial matters (Community Outreach).
NOTE: For medical transportation, a senior has to do an intake and be a CFS client. They do not do one-off appointments and this service is primarily for those individuals who need a CFS staff person to attend the medical meeting with them (for advocacy, to take notes, etc.)
