Thank you for your interest in FriendshipWorks. FriendshipWorks is at the forefront of alleviating social isolation and making connections.  We love to share information and resources in the hope that it will help others to learn, think, and do something to reduce elder isolation. Our compassionate model provides a great start and is backed by four decades of experience. Come in and take a look around!

Since 1984, our Boston-based nonprofit organization has been connecting older adults with volunteers of all backgrounds for friendship and assistance. This free service is for adults who are 60 years of age or older (55+ with vision and hearing impairments).

FriendshipWorks provides a range of services, programs, and resources for older adults to create social connection, reduce isolation, and build community through the joy of music, the love of pets, meaningful visits between older adults and their volunteer matches, assistance with tasks or errands, and medical escorts for medical appointments.

In this newsroom, we offer a range of information that includes a photo & video gallery, suggested topics on which FriendshipWorks can speak or provide resources, and links to FriendshipWorks’ media coverage.

We would love to work with you; please contact Marketing & Communications, Laura Willis at: to get started. After all, our mission is to connect!
