Since 1984, FriendshipWorks has worked to reduce elder isolation by connecting volunteers with older adults for friendship and support.
FriendshipWorks is celebrating 40 years of creating connections to end elder isolation in the neighborhoods of Greater Boston. We're having a special event to kick-off this milestone year!
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.
