Whom We Serve

Serving Isolated Elders in Chicago

We serve Chicagoans 70 years of age and older who are living without family or friends.

Isolation and loneliness can become a problem as we age.  Spouses and family members pass away. Retirement from work ends connections with friends in the workplace. Moving from a long-time home can cut connections with friends and social connections from the neighborhood. Children move away.  Friends retire to warmer locations. Medical and health issues, financial challenges, and loss of hearing or mobility further compound a sense of isolation and loneliness.

Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly offers a variety of social programs and activites at no cost to the seniors we serve. All of our programs are designed to help our elders make new friends, connect with their communities, and build new relationships with each other, and our dedciated volunteers and staff.

We respect each elder as an individual, offering each elder a lifetime commitment of companionship and caring, an audience for self-expression, and a network of friends. 

If you or someone you know would benefit from our programs, please refer an elder.
