Senior Value and Savings

Senior Value and Savings

Good news everyone! With great fervor our new membership model is now being fully utilized. Our new model for our membership dues is going to be more streamlined and member-friendly because it will feature a Pay What You Can approach. The most important concept of this new membership model is that we will no longer have set annual fees. We believe that money (or lack thereof) should not determine whether a senior receives the connection and help they need and deserve from their neighbors. In the spirit of the Pay What You Can membership model, the following services have detailed value and savings information that is provided as a result of being a member of A Little Help.
