In 2011, we hired the organization’s first full-time Executive Director, and this level of leadership has led us to many great successes, including: growth in member and volunteer participation; greater depth in quality and quantity of our services; professional board and staff recruitment; and fundraising through foundation grants, corporate partnerships, giving campaigns, individual donors, and events. We have also expanded programming systems, capacity, and vision; improved service coordination and volunteer management; and improved branding, marketing, web presence, and strategic planning, visioning, and momentum. A Little Help’s impact is continuing to expand by forging strategic partnerships with organizations and by growing geographically as our population ages.
With A Little Help, our older adults are connected to neighbors, experts on aging, and many local resources, empowering them to thrive in their homes.
Since our founding, A Little Help has served nearly two thousand older adults and has engaged thousands of community volunteers.
This is a terrific story of a grassroots organization and it continues to unfold.
