Lend A Hand Senior Outreach, Inc is a growing coalition of central Tucson neighborhoods, faith-based communities, and business partnerships working together to help older residents living within the boundaries of the participating neighborhoods. Trained volunteers provide services including transportation, errands, friendly visits, and access to other resources that allow older residents to continue to live independently in their own homes, while reconnecting neighbors to each other.
Our Coalition Members are Campus Farms, Hedrick Acres, Jefferson Park, La Madera, Limberlost, Mountain/First, Samos, and Winterhaven Neighborhoods; The Campbell Avenue Business Partnership; and The Mountain Avenue Church of Christ.
LEND A HAND Volunteer Program is a member of the Neighbors Care Alliance, a program administered through Pima Council on Aging (PCOA) and funded in part by a grant through The Southern Arizona Compassion Initiative, a partnership between United Way of Tucson, Pima Council on Aging, PRO Neighborhoods, Interfaith Community Services and the Multicultural Leadership Development Program.
I helped found & coordinate a similiar Neighbors Care Alliance program in my neighborhood, so I am very familiar with the benefits of such a volunteer program, to assist the elderly (mostly widows).
