Seniors

MIFA’s senior programs are designed to promote independence, health, companionship, and dignity.

  • MIFA Meals on Wheels delivers hot, nutritious lunches daily to seniors at their homes and at congregate sites.
  • Long-Term Care Ombudsman advocates for the rights of thousands of residents in nursing homes, assisted-living facilities, and residential care homes.

Families

MIFA’s family programs provide basic services to prevent homelessness, stabilize families, and encourage independence.

  • Emergency Services provides utility, rent, and mortgage assistance for Shelby County households who have lost income or experienced a recent crisis. 
  • Emergency Shelter Placement helps families secure temporary shelter if homelessness cannot be avoided through mediation.
  • Rapid Rehousing assists literally homeless families with children with short-term assistance to quickly obtain permanent stable housing. Families must already be in emergency shelter to be eligible for this program.
  • Our 24-hour Hotline for Homeless Families helps connect families with minor children in Memphis and Shelby County to shelter and/or other resources. Call (901) 529-4545.
