Little Brothers-Friends of the Elderly is a national, non-profit, non-sectarian, volunteer based organization committed to relieving isolation and loneliness among the elderly. We offer volunteers the opportunity to join the elderly in the celebration of life.
We opened our Boston doors in 1979, and have since been working to improve the lives of the elderly men and women who turn to us for emotional and physical support. With a small staff and a dedicated crew of volunteers, we reach out to our elderly neighbors to provide companionship, support and caring. Our goal is to help our elderly friends to feel connected to a larger community.
In the last year we were privileged to touch the lives of 680 elderly women and men, and, with the participation of over 1,500 volunteers, provided 26,300 hours of friendship and service.
Little Brothers-Friends of the Elderly is a 501(c)(3) organization – all gifts are tax deductible to the extent provided by the law. We are not a government sponsored or United Way agency: all funds are raised from individual donors, volunteers, and with foundation and corporate help.
