A Little Help's mission is to connect neighbors to help seniors thrive. Our vision is to see neighbors connected across generations engaged in strong communities.
A Little Help is a nonprofit organization that connects neighbors across ages to enhance lives and strengthen our communities.
To that end, A Little Help is helping older adults to 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 with A Little Help, good neighbors can help elders with transportation, yard work, handiwork, home organization, and social engagement, empowering seniors to thrive in the communities they have put down roots in for decades. We create opportunities for our seniors to share reciprocally their stories and skills in the community. For example, as Service Saturday! volunteers are working hard to clear flower beds and cut down vines, our members are quick to impart their own wisdom and experience to share gardening tips with young adults and new homeowners.
Our elders have made the choice of staying at home, with a little help from their friends and neighbors, rather than moving to a retirement community (with a lot of help). Studies show that living in the comfort of our own homes is the best, and most cost-effective, choice of most people.
We get by with A Little Help from our friends…
