SAFETY NET ASSISTANCE PROJECT

Safety Net Assistance Project is a Non Profit foundation, located at 7710 T Cherry Park Drive. Suite 519. Houston TX 77095. 

It was started in 2013 by Frances Okafor-Emezue.  

Frances started this organization because of the great need she saw in the elderly population.  We owe it to ourselves and to our communities to put more care and attention into how we care for the elderly.

Life expectancy in the United States has been on the rise for a decade, increasing 1.4 years — from 76.5 years in 1997 to 77.9 in 2007, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The life expectancy data, compiled by the agency’s National Center for Health Statistics, are based on nearly 90 percent of the death certificates filed in the United States.

Many of the elderly are living longer due to modern technologies and advancements in medicine and we have seen increases in the life expectancy for both men and women in every socio economic level. While this is good news, longevity also comes at a huge price that many outlive their savings and benefits and also incur a greater risk of disability that increases care giving needs in the last years of life.

Our current healthcare system is ill-equipped to handle this increase in the aging population since its primary purpose is to manage diseases not the needs that come from disability.

I slept

And dreamt that life was joy

I awoke

And saw that life was but service

I served 

And understood that service was joy

Tagore.

VISION: Our ultimate goal is a world where all the physical, emotional, spiritual and medical needs of the elderly population in our communities are wholly met on a daily basis.

MISSION: The mission of SNAP is to assist the vulnerable elderly in our communities to navigate and access resources and receive assistance to ensure they maintain an adequate quality of life.

We will connect seniors to available resources and programs in the community and beyond. We will target the dispossessed in our communities, the many that have fallen through the cracks and other societal safety nets.

Despite all the homeless shelters, food banks and charitable organizations in our communities, far too many of our citizens still go hungry every night, sleep on the streets, do not have access to a medical facility or medical practitioner and  have not seen a doctor in years or don’t have a doctor at all. If they do have a doctor, they are without any reliable means of getting to the doctor. Our mission is to bridge this gap by focusing on raising awareness in the service area of available social services and provide application and technical assistance for state-funded social and health services.
