Little Brothers-Friends of the Elderly is a national network of non-profit volunteer-based organizations committed to relieving isolation and loneliness among the elderly. We offer to people of goodwill the opportunity to join the elderly in friendship and celebration of life. LBFE Boston is an inter-generational program that brings older and younger participants together in senior housing buildings, senior centers, and assisted living facilities across the city. Inter-generational groups get together for social activities, games, art programs, tech cafes, language learning, and companionship on a weekly basis throughout the year. In our programs all participants, regardless of age, have the opportunity to be a teacher and a student, a mentor and a mentee, a giver and a receiver. Through mutually-beneficial programming real and meaningful relationships are formed bridging cultures and generations.
