Two Are Better Than One

Did you know that 2/3’s of all the people who have ever lived past 65 in the history of the world are alive today?

Two Are Better Than One connects volunteers from local congregations and community groups to provide practical acts of love and service to seniors in their communities, allowing them to live safely and comfortably in their homes for as long as possible.  Chicago is filled with 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.

We are looking for dedicated volunteers to help us improve the well-being of seniors and their caregivers through friendly visiting, home repair, and personal assistance services. To learn more, email Shanell Allen or call 773-642-9207.
