Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly in San Francisco has committed itself to enriching the lives of the elderly and their volunteers by fostering friendships that celebrate life. Such friendships are bound by time-honored stories, shared laughter and cherished dreams that teach us about ourselves and cultivate life. Little Brothers offers flexible and diverse volunteer opportunities, enabling volunteers to choose to make weekly, monthly or seasonal time commitments.
We welcome volunteers to accompany us to recognize and accept each of our elders as a complete and unique person and to respect them in their dignity, their intimacy and their essence; to be their advocate and their witness; to help them remain independent and encourage them to make their own choices; to see them as people that are always growing and changing. Our mission is a collective project. Commitment and teamwork between volunteers and staff are at the heart of our organization.
