CAMBRIDGE — He’s an 83-year-old war vet who sleeps on the edge of his bed because he’s fearful someone will come after him.
She’s an elderly woman with dementia; a victim of domestic abuse who is destitute because of her dead husband’s gambling debts.
They are two examples of a growing number of homeless seniors who seek emergency shelter in Cambridge.
Since 2009, the homeless shelter in Cambridge has seen the number of seniors coming to The Bridges double each year. Last year, they housed 98.“It is a real problem,” said Gillian Aiello, volunteer and fundraising manager at the 40-bed emergency shelter.
“These people deserve to live a life. It is the end of their life,” Aiello said.
On April 11, the Cambridge shelter will be putting the spotlight on homeless seniors at their annual fundraising event.

The Challenge Is On!
Good walking shoes, and a big heart is are you need to make a huge difference in someone’s life when you join this year’s annual “Walk to the Future” on December 7th.
It’s so EASY, and it’s fun! Your team for this annual fundraising community challenge can be a few of your best friends, members of your Church, your school or your co-workers. Get together with neighbours, and round up the kids. Pick up your sponsorship form, and you’re ready to go.
We meet at Monsignor Doyle Catholic Secondary School on Myers Rd between 9 and 10 am on the day of the 5k walk. We’ll be ready to get you on your way for the 10am start. The walk takes approximately an hour, and of course everyone goes at their own pace. This is social, fun chance to get out and show your support for families and individuals in your local region who will benefit greatly from the dollars raised.
AND THERE’S MORE…
A hot lunch is supplied when you return at the end of the walk along with live entertainment and draws for prizes!
Funds contributed to the “Walk to the Future” are used to help people in need in the Cambridge area. Expenses associated with the Walk to the Future average less than 3% of the money raised. We’re able to do this by having a generous volunteer community that dedicate their time and expertise to organizing this event each and every year.
If you have questions about this event, please call us at 519-624-9305.
