Friendship Centers Annual Appeal Friendship at Home Program

Our Friendship at Home program reaches isolated, lonely and homebound seniors who often don't have a family member or friend to advocate for them. World War II vet Lloyd Harris counts on volunteer Sheila Kinnery to give him a hand. He says, "Sheila is an absolute doll. Because of her, I can stay in my home."
People served each year: 350.
