The annual cost of living in Barrie this year is $31,464.00. Heartbreakingly, approximately 1 in 5 seniors live below the poverty line of $19,501.00.
Many elderly in our community can't pay for basic necessities like rent, food, prescriptions and transportation, never mind clothing or toiletries, and other essentials. In addition, many of these seniors are women living alone without family to assist them.
We are on a mission to assist where we can, but we need your help! We are working with community partners to identify seniors most in need and distributing grocery vouchers, rent assistance, and other necessities. We have set a target to reach $25.000.00, and you can make this happen!
