Creating uplifting connections between generations

Our intergenerational community serves seniors and their families in ways that best meet their needs.

Serving seniors is our privilege. Whatever your need—a simple ride, a hand around the house, a homemade meal, a prayer—meeting it is our pleasure. We offer home visits, transportation, meals, lawn care, resource referrals, and more.

Shirley was referred to HOPEseniors by her township office early during the Covid pandemic.

A short time after we met, her home was condemned following an electrical fire. As we helped move Shirley into supportive care, we were able to declutter and downsize her belongings, help sell her home, upgrade her health insurance coverage, and connect her with counseling resources for emotional support.

As our relationship developed, I promised I would always be there for her. Two years later, Shirley is beginning to thrive. She often says, ‘The cloud is lifting! I could never have done this without you.’”
