Refer an Elder

Help bring friendship to a Chicago elder!

Do you know of a Chicago elder living alone? Someone who rarely has visitors or anyone to chat with? An elder unable to get out often or even at all? 

To become a Little Brothers’ member, one must simply be a Chicago resident, 70 years or older and with limited social contacts or nearby family members. We serve English and Spanish-speaking elders and have bilingual volunteers and staff who visit and help our elders.

If you know of an elder who would benefit from our services, or if you are an elder in the population we serve, call us at 312-455-1000. You can also email us or fill out the form below, and we’ll reach out for a conversation. If you’re referring an elder, we’ll ensure he or she is eligible and wishes to participate. 

  • Please include YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS, so we can quickly reach out with any additional questions about the elder you're referring.

Little Brothers Puts Health, Well-being First

We've put a proactive plan in place to help protect the health of our elders, volunteers and staff. Beginning Friday, March 13th, parties, social clubs and in-home visits are suspended. 

Instead, volunteers and staff will be reaching out to our elder friends with handwritten cards and phone calls to check in and share conversation. Please join us to remind our elders they are not alone.
