ALLEVIATING LONELINESS FOR OUR FORGOTTEN ELDERLY

We Change Your Life & World
We Provide social support for the elderly
Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly serves lonely and isolated elderly in the United States.
For many, isolation comes with growing older. Children move away, a car wears out and is not replaced, or a driver's license is surrendered. This isolation is compounded by poverty.
By visiting, socializing, and offering programs that promote independent living, we strive to meet the emotional and physical needs of our elderly friends. Our programs combat loneliness and help our elderly friends know they are valued and loved.
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.
Our history dates back to the mid 1900s with Armand Marquiset of France. Our mission in Greater Cincinnati began in 1996. Each year, LBFE serves hundreds of Tri–state elderly through outreach programs, all designed to relieve isolation and loneliness among the elderly and to assist them in living quality lives.
Headquartered near Mt. Airy Forest, the Cincinnati chapter serves elderly in over 90 communities across Hamilton and Clermont counties. We currently have more than 450 elderly in our network who we assist in some manner.
Thank you sponsors!
Help The Cause
Join our Next Fundraising opportunity on March 9th!
Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly has been the friend and family support to some of the most vulnerable elders in the Greater Cincinnati area, relieving loneliness and isolation, for over 27 years. As we continue to learn of new data and research around loneliness and isolation, it has become quite evident how crucial the work of LBFE is to a population of people facing these issues while also being limited by mobility, transportation, and relationships. As an organization operating solely through volunteer support, private funds, and donations, our signature fundraising events and supporters like you are key!
On Saturday, March 9, 2024, we will host our 27th Anniversary Gala at the Newport Syndicate. This event is a special one as we will be honoring our founder and former leader of 26 years, Thee Ms. Yogi Wess! Join us, as we rally around to celebrate her work and a job so well done while securing the future of her legacy!
We hope that you will join us in celebration and support our mission at LBFE.
