Join Us and Receive More than A Little Help
Being able to age in your own home and to stay connected to community is incredibly important. The tasks and activities our volunteers perform help older adults remain in their homes longer by taking care of things that they can no longer do and offsetting some of the expenses of hired help. Our volunteers also provide needed social interaction that often develops into deeper, long-term connections.
A Little Help volunteers can provide transportation to medical appointments or fitness classes. They can help with yard work and small handy tasks to keep a home safe and comfortable. Volunteers provide snow shoveling for safe walkways and companionship through friendly calls and visits. Our Little Talks, Virtual Excursions, social gatherings and interest groups, whether provided virtually or in person, build connections that serve to fight loneliness and isolation.
We know that there can be a financial burden associated with moving into a care facility. Those costs can be defrayed or delayed by the help provided by the A Little Help volunteers who give their time and skills to support the older adults in their neighborhoods.
Older adults who join A Little Help “pay what they can” for membership. We believe that all of members should have access to the social and financial benefits of being part of our organization. All members, no matter the amount they choose to contribute, receive the same access to programs, events and volunteer help.
A Little Help operates on the basis of mutual respect between our older adults and volunteers. We are not solely a service provider, we also provide a strong, intergenerational community. To that end, all members of our community must treat one another with respect.
