The Friends of Center 50+ proudly supports initiatives designed to promote strong social connections. Together we can positively address the issues of senior isolation and loneliness in our community and create a better experience of aging for all.
The Friendship Brigade takes a stand against loneliness by recruiting, training, and connecting over 100 caring volunteers with 1,000 isolated seniors and disabled adults living in local community care and nursing facilities.
Say hello! The Friendly Caller program matches caring phone volunteers with home-bound seniors for a weekly check-in and valuable social support.
Center 50+ Villages Network connects seniors living independently in the comfort of their own home as peers interested in navigating the challenges and opportunities of aging together. Village members socialize, create, support, explore, and encourage one another to take on aging with joy, passion, and purpose.
