ORGANIZATION: Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly

  • 12 people are interested

We are seeking volunteers who occasionally have time during the day to help out with our Medical Escort Program. Through this program, volunteers provide crucial transportation services to our older adult participants, to and from their medical appointments.

Volunteers are needed to pick up the older adult at their home, escort them to their appointment, and then drive them home after their appointment is complete. This service is free to older adults who are enrolled in our program. You do not need your own vehicle to participate. Ride-share services, such as Uber or Lyft are great, just keep in mind that LBFE will not be able to reimburse you for such rides.

All volunteers will need to attend a volunteer orientation as well as complete a background check in order to become a Medical Escort. If you would like to become a medical escort with LBFE or for more information about our organization, please email Debbie (duchida@littlebrotherssf.org).

Mission Statement

Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly is a national network of non-profit organizations committed to relieving isolation and loneliness among older adults. We offer to people of goodwill the opportunity to join older adults in friendship and the celebration of life.

Description

Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly (LBFE) is committed to enriching the lives of lonely and isolated older adults in San Francisco. Virtually all of our services are carried out by individual volunteers; community, civic, and religious groups; and the business community. LBFE offers flexible and diverse volunteer opportunities, and volunteers can choose to make weekly, monthly, or seasonal time commitments.

LBFE has been supporting an incredible project called 80 over 80.
80 over 80 is a series of interviews that celebrates 80 people, living in San Francisco, who have passed the remarkable milestone of reaching 80. It includes the incredible stories and experiences of some of our wonderful LBFE Older Adults. Check our their stories here: https://80over80sf.org/80over80-stories
