St. Mary’s Center Hope and Justice program trains seniors to advocate for policy changes that    directly impact their lives. They engage in social justice activities that protect the civil rights and economic benefits for extremely low-income seniors, including those that live outside.

Current activities include

  • Collaborating with community organizations to reduce discrimination against people who live outside
  • Lending our voices to policies that protect and increase the number of deeply affordable housing unit
  • Outreach to SSI recipients to help them enroll in CalFresh, California's food stamp program
  • Facilitating inspirational, educational onsite events like the one featured below

If you would like to support Hope and Justice, please contact Janny Castillo, Program Coordinator, jcastillo@stmaryscenter.org or go to our What’s Happening page or the pressroom.
