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.

Share friendship on Thanksgiving Day!

The holidays can feel especially lonely for elders living without support from family or friends.

On Thanksgiving Day, we throw three parties across the city, and our caring volunteers deliver turkey dinners and other goodies during in-home visits. This way, no elder is alone on a day meant for togetherness. Your generous support makes our work possible!
