OUR MISSION: CONNECTING NEIGHBORS TO HELP OLDER ADULTS THRIVE
A Little Help is a nonprofit organization that connects neighbors of all ages to enhance lives and strengthen our communities.
To that end, we help older adults age well in their homes by connecting them to an important resource plentiful in every community: good neighbors. Many tasks around the house and yard chip away at independence, but through A Little Help, good neighbors can help with transportation, yard work, handiwork, home organization, and social engagement, empowering older adults to thrive where they have lived for decades and put down roots. This interaction also creates opportunities for our seniors to share their stories and skills.
For example, while Service Saturday! volunteers are clearing flower beds and cutting down vines, our members enjoy sharing their own gardening tips with young adults and new homeowners. Studies show that living in the comfort of their own homes is the best and most cost-effective choice for most people. Our older members have chosen to stay at home, with a little help from their friends and neighbors.
