Friendship Centers is a nonprofit organization serving older adults in five counties in Southwest Florida. A belief in “People Helping People,” has been the foundation of our organization for more than four decades. More than 800 volunteers serve in nearly every facet of Friendship Centers. In 2016, we were THE safety net for close to 15,000 seniors living in our service area. We provided over a half million individual “units of service” to older adults in the arenas of medical and dental services, caregiving, meals, exercise classes, lifelong learning, economic assistance, and socialization. Through state and local partnerships, we were able to improve the health of thousands of uninsured seniors on limited incomes. Our award-winning centers and our clinics have drawn national and international attention as models for the delivery of programs and services to older adults.
