before bread

Committed to relieving isolation and loneliness among the elderly in Boston since 1979.

CitySites are Back!

A warm welcome back to our returning PULSE and Northeastern students, and welcome to our new student volunteers! With the start of the Spring semester, LBFE is excited to resume weekly CitySites programming at 13 locations across Boston. 

Twenty-eight students and our two Volunteer Program Assistants will be participating in our inter-generational programs that bring people from different generations and cultures together to celebrate life. The programs range from conversation hours to games to tech cafes to art programs (and more!) depending on the talents and interests of the participants of all-ages. 

CitySites creates opportunities for residents at senior housing buildings to connect and form a peer social network where they live. Additionally, residents find meaningful community engagement through their relationships with students attending school in their neighborhoods. Inter-generational programs challenge perceptions on both sides of the spectrum and results in beautiful, unexpected friendships.

Refer an Elder

Do you know of an elderly Bostonian living alone? Is there a homebound elder near you who never has any visitors? Do you see the same elderly person sitting in the park with no one to talk to and share the day?

Refer now!

Your financial gifts will allow us to continue reaching out to those elders who have no one else to turn to.
