According to Nancy Eldridge, Executive Director of Vermont's Cathedral Square Corporation, programs that combine funding sources and care management approaches can provide cost effective, compassionate, and sustainable housing and care for low-income elderly people.    

Cathedral Square's innovative SASH program (Support and Services at Home) is just such a program, as Eldridge describes in Sunday's Burlington Free Press

Eldridge recently received the highest honor awarded by LeadingAge for her dedication to coordinating housing and health care services for Vermont’s elderly population, including her role in creating the SASH program.  LeadingAge is a national association of 5,600 not-for-profit organizations dedicated to expanding the world of possibilities for aging.
