What we aim to solve New!

The Florida Housing Data Clearinghouse provides data on housing affordability by County. In 2015, 26,942 households in Indian River County were headed by a person age 65 or older. To be considered affordable, a household must pay less than 30 percent of its income towards housing. In 2015 in Indian River County, 8,631 elderly households paid more than 30 percent of their income for rent or mortgage costs. These figures are staggering and demonstrate the significant need for affordable housing specifically for the elderly in Indian River County. Residents of SFM are former teachers, city lifeguards, military veterans and other service providers. Many were the working poor now living on less than $1,000 per month, most of that derived from Social Security benefits.

Floridahousingsearch.org and Indian River County report the following affordable housing options for seniors in Indian River County: Lexington Club at Vero Apartments, River Park Place, Villas at Vero Beach, By The River, and Sunset Apartments. Most of these complexes have contract rent in the $600-$700 range, as compared to SFM's rent in the $300 range. Gardenia Gardens and Orange Blossom Village are public housing communities reserved for seniors considered Very Low-Income, as defined by HUD. Together, these two complexes represent only 160 units, not sufficient to meet the needs of the large, cost burdened senior population in the area. At this time, SFM is not aware of any other properties being constructed that will offer affordable, rental housing for seniors. With the construction of 18 new one-bedroom apartments, St. Francis Manor has increased the number of low income senior apartments by 20%; however, the waiting list at The Manor is more than 80 senior citizens.

St. Francis Manor has just increased the number of apartments on its property by 20% with the addition of the 18 one-bedroom apartments.

St. Francis Manor has hired a part-time Communications & Development Coordinator to increase fundraising, lead the special events and complete the Capital Campaign.

Completion of the Capital Campaign, an increase in fundraising revenue

There is 100% occupancy with more than 80 seniors on the waiting list for apartments. The Capital Campaign is nearing completion with an increase in revenue. One new fundraiser has been added and the annual fundraiser revenue has increased. New grants are being researched to help with the major capital expenses and a planned giving program is being created.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
