Caring for Friends™, formerly known as Aid for Friends, serves hungry, isolated, elderly, and homebound people in the 5-county greater Philadelphia area.
If you or someone you know is in need of food, friendship, or other important items to live comfortably at home, we want to help.
To be eligible for our meal service program, you must be over the age of 60 or disabled, a resident within the 5-county greater Philadelphia area, and in true need of assistance.
Once we’ve been contacted, a coordinator will visit the home of a potential client, assess the situation, and determine if and how we can help. If appropriate, we’ll match them with a volunteer who will provide prepared meals on a regular basis. *This program is on hold due to COVID-19.
Caring for Friends also works with a number of other agencies to help serve people who are isolated and homebound, including the Salvation Army, Catholic Social Services, Episcopal Community Services, and the Area Agencies on Aging in all 5 counties of the Philadelphia region. If for some reason a potential client is not a match for our organization, we’ll help them get the support they need.
