Magoffin Single Room Occupancy
1221 Magoffin Avenue, El Paso, Texas 79901
Founded in October, 2002
The Magoffin Avenue Single Room Occupancy residence provides permanent supportive housing for 20 elderly, sick, or disabled men and women who are homeless.
This shelter was created in response to a growing number of elderly homeless who had little hope of moving off the streets or out of shelter environment due to their fragile condition.
All residents are between 55-90 years old, independent, and able to care for themselves. Those who are able to work participate in American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) job placement and training programs.
Others attend adult day care programs where their health can be monitored, while they participate in social activities, arts, crafts, exercise, and even field trips.
Skilled home health aides regularly visit residents who qualify for home health services.
