Description


\Little Brothers-Friends of the Elderly is a national non-profit, volunteer-based organization committed to relieving isolation and loneliness among the elderly. We offer, to people of good will, the opportunity to join with the elderly in the celebration of life. We believe in, and nurture, the philosophy that feeding the soul (with companionship, friendliness, and flowers) as well as the body (with good food) promotes both the physical and mental health of the elderly, enabling them to remain independent and avoid costly and impersonal institutional alternatives. Little Brothers-Friends of the Elderly does not accept government funds and is not a United Way agency (Although you can designate Little Brothers ‚? Boston as the recipient of your United Way or workplace campaigns.) All programs are funded solely through the generosity and compassion of volunteers, private donors, corporations, and foundations. Without this generous support from the Boston community at large, Little Brothers could not fulfill its mission to relieve the loneliness and isolation of its "at risk" elders.
