HOSPITALITY AT HOME

Hospitality at Home is a presence-based ministry sustained by committed and caring volunteers offering friendship and supportive services to assist in the alleviation of isolation and loneliness of seniors age 70 and older. As the program continues to develop, we are finding that the least of the least from this population are often those who struggle with self-neglect. Therefore, we work directly with government agencies, such as Adult Protective Services, to identify individuals who can benefit from our program. We are a referral-based ministry but please feel free to reach out if you need support in identifying resources for yourself or a loved one.
