Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly's philosophy, programs and activities are focused on alleviating loneliness and isolation among elders in Chicago. The need for social interaction is critical to the human spirit - we believe that nurturing the soul is as important as feeding the body. Join us this spring and make a new friend!

Volunteers support elders in the Chicago area in a variety of ways:

Join an elder at an event - Little Brothers hosts at least two parties a month, most often a birthday party and a neighborhood reunion. Volunteers pick up elders at their homes and drive them to a party and are seated with these elders. Enjoy a great meal and great conversations! Commitment is 11 AM - 4 PM. We have two large events coming up, Easter Sunday and our anniversary celebration on April 21st!

Visit an elder at their home - Volunteers visit elders who are unable to attend a party. This is a perfect opportunity for friends or families to do together. Commitment is about 3 hours.

Support at an event - Volunteers help with serving food and drinks, greeting and socializing with elders, and helping clean up afterwards. Commitment is 10 AM - 4 PM.

Contact Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly today to make an impact in an elderly person's life! Attendance at an orientation session is required, as well as a background screen. To sign up please visit or call (312) 455-1000 or email for more information.

See you soon!
