Since 1984, FriendshipWorks has worked to reduce elder isolation by connecting volunteers with older adults for friendship and support.
Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving – and FriendshipWorks is participating. Donate today and your gift will be generously matched!
Our Service Areas include Boston, Brookline, Newton, Somerville and Cambridge.
Our Impact in the last year
Our mission is to reduce social isolation, enhance the quality of life, and preserve the dignity of older adults in Greater Boston. We accomplish this by recruiting and training volunteers of all ages, faiths, and backgrounds who provide friendship, advocacy, education, assistance, and emotional support.
