Through participation in A Little Help, older adults remain connected. They increase interaction with youth and engage more with one another to prevent isolation.  If you would like to become a member of A Little Help to receive services, access the application above.

Membership

Our membership dues are member-friendly, using a "pay what you can" approach. Our members pay what they can to access services and programs each year. We believe that funding should not determine whether older adults receive the connection and help they need from their communities.
