We Are Family is a non-profit that mobilizes a large network of volunteers to reach out to isolated inner-city seniors with free services, advocacy, and companionship, to build a network of caring eyes and ears that enables at-risk seniors to age in place. We provide free food deliveries, visits, transportation, and other services. More than simply a social service provider, We Are Family is a bold experiment in building caring, just and inclusive community. In 2017, We Are Family:
delivered more than 8,700 grocery bags, delivered weekly produce deliveries to 200 seniors in the summer and fall, provided more than 300 round trip rides, conducted 550 outreach visits to seniors in their homes, delivered 450 personalized birthday cards, provided 801 Thanksgiving baskets, and delivered 712 holiday gifts.
