During the pandemic, our founder, James Crocker, was told about the loneliness that senior home residents were experiencing. Because of the strict Covid-19 regulations, he could not visit the seniors so he decided to start writing them letters. The letters were such a hit that he recruited his friends to help him. More and more people wanted to help out thus forming 'Letters for our Elders'.
Our goal is to reduce loneliness in Connecticut senior homes through our letter writing. We know that by connecting seniors to our teen volunteers we can form important intergenerational connections.
