SENIOR VALUE AND SAVINGS

Our membership dues are member-friendly, using a "pay what you can" approach.  We believe that money (or lack thereof) should not determine whether seniors receive the connection and help they need from their communities.  The following examples show the benefits and savings our members may realize through participation in A Little Help.
