ALLEVIATING LONELINESS FOR OUR FORGOTTEN ELDERLY
Imagine every day waking up alone, eating alone, sitting home alone, waiting for the hours of the day to pass. No one with whom to share your joys. No one to share your fears. Each day like another. Feeling abandoned. Lonely. Isolated.
No one should live like this, yet in Greater Cincinnati alone hundreds of elderly lack one essential part of life—someone to call a friend.
Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly (LBFE) is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization committed to relieving isolation and loneliness among the elderly. We offer to people of good will the opportunity to join the elderly in friendship and celebration of life.

Nearly all in-person events have been suspended due to COVID. But the events listed below will give you an idea of what it's like to volunteer with Little Brothers in normal times. Those times will be back!
