Relieving isolation and loneliness among the elderly
Our Intergenerational Program provides both elder volunteers and young people the opportunity to give back. There is plenty of sharing at intergenerational events, as well. Elders share their stories, providing an eyewitness account of historic events and a snapshot of what life was like when they were young.
For most of us, the holidays are a time to spend with family or friends. For some, if family has passed on or live far away, holidays can be a hard time. We work with volunteers to ensure that everyone has a chance to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas, whether at a party or with a personal visit on the holiday.
Bring friendship, socialization and connection to an elder this winter! Your gift makes an afternoon at the museum, going out to lunch and a movie or any other activity friends enjoy together possible.
Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly is a national network of non-profit volunteer-based organizations committed to relieving isolation and loneliness among the elderly. We offer to people of goodwill the opportunity to join the elderly in friendship and celebration of life.
