FriendshipWorks held its Elderbration & 8th Annual Walk to End Elder Isolation on May 21, 2023! Thank you to all who walked with us! We'll be accepting donations to the walk through June 30th - help us cross the finish line!
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.
