Engaging College Students to Improve the Lives of Adults with Chronic Illness

Lori’s Hands harnesses the energy of college students to address unmet needs among aging Baltimoreans with chronic illness. During weekly visits, trained student volunteers provide clients with much-needed companionship and assist with essential tasks such as grocery shopping, completing household chores, and navigating community resources, among other instrumental activities of daily living. Funding from Qlarant Foundation supports the programmatic costs needed to expand our impact among those most in need of assistance as they age in place in Baltimore.
