Two Are Better Than One
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.
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? 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.
