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! 


Like to contribute?

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