Two Are Better Than One

MISSION: Fostering community to empower seniors to live healthy, safe and contributing lives.

Two Are Better Than One connects volunteers from local congregations and community groups to provide practical acts of love and service to seniors/caregivers of seniors in their communities, allowing them to live safely and comfortably in their homes for as long as possible.  Chicago is filled with seniors/caregivers of seniors living alone with inadequate support systems.  They simply do not have family, friends, neighbors or a faith community to look out for them on a regular basis.  Adding to the problem are the recent cuts in government funding to this population group.

Family & Community Services believes we can partner with Chicago volunteer groups in providing loving relationships and practical care to at-risk seniors and caregivers throughout the city of Chicago.
