Visiting with our seniors

Join We Are Family staff and other volunteers to visit with seniors in their homes at this monthly Saturday event! We will meet up at a central location in Northwest DC, and after a brief orientation volunteers will be sent out in pairs or family units to visit with some of the many seniors we serve in surrounding neighborhoods. We work with over 1,000 seniors annually, and many of them are very isolated and have limited opportunity to interact with others. They have seen so much and have amazing stories and experiences to share. Spend a few hours of your weekend to help brighten the lives of your senior neighbors in DC! You may meet a senior you really connect with, and there is always the possibility to visit with that same person again. Space is limited for these events.

About We Are Family DC

Location:

1525 Newton St. NW, Washington, DC 20010, US

Mission Statement

We Are Family reaches out with services, advocacy, and companionship to isolated, low-income seniors in the Shaw, Columbia Heights, Petworth and Adams Morgan areas of Washington, DC, using a volunteer-driven model, grounded in grassroots senior leadership.

Description

We Are Family serves seniors in the Shaw, Columbia Heights, Petworth, and Adams Morgan neighborhoods of Washington, DC. We bring advocacy, services, organizing, and companionship into the homes of the elderly, while helping to build friendships across boundaries like race, class, religion, age, culture, and sexual orientation.

Most of our work is done by volunteers. While many of those who help do the work of We Are Family are seniors themselves -- who, after all, have built this community -- *we need you as well.* We use volunteer assistance for our outreach and our grocery deliveries to over 1,000 seniors each month. Please join us!
