ORGANIZATION: Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly Chicago Chapter

Visiting Volunteer

Homebound Program: This program has two parts, in the winter it will bring volunteers and elders together to share a cup of hot cocoa or coffee (something warm in these very chilly months) and have a relaxing conversation in the comfort of our elders’ homes! In the summer it will bring volunteers and elders to share together activities (card game, craft project, a movie, lunch etc.).

About Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly Chicago Chapter

Location:

355 N Ashland Avenue, Chicago, IL 60607, US

Mission Statement

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.

Description

Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly (LBFE) is committed to meeting the needs of elders who are isolated and alone. Our motto, flowers before bread, expresses the belief that love, dignity and beauty in life are as important as basic physical needs. This philosophy is reflected in all of our activities, which include one-on-one visits, holiday parties, vacations in the country and individual birthdays celebrated by the delivery of a cake and a gift. The quality of our services is just as important as the services themselves.The elders served by LBFE have little or no contact with family and friends, few financial resources and many reside in dangerous and deteriorating neighborhoods. When we enter their lives we provide them with companionship, which is something that many of them have not had in years.

Last year we served nearly 1,200 elders, with the indispensable help of over 1,300 volunteers giving more than 54,000 hours of their time.

We have a broad range of opportunities for volunteers, donors and elders to share, learn, grow...and to celebrate life. Opportunities are available year-round. LBFE is great way for families to volunteer together and to introduce youth to service.

Help LBFE bring elders from isolation to celebration!
