Since 1962, Little Brothers has been working to alleviate the social isolation and loneliness of elders by providing free companionship that brighten their lives and restore joy. Regardless of their physical and cognitive conditions, Little Brothers is committed to creating a lasting and caring relationship.
When an isolated senior enters our extended family, we make this promise: “We are and will always be there for you. Welcome to your new family! “

In Québec, 1 in 5 people are at risk of suffering from social isolation and have no one to turn to for support. These numbers could explode in the coming decades as the population ages.
Thanks to the vital support of these volunteers and donors, Little Brothers has a significant impact on the lives of close to 2,600 seniors each year, and hopes to continue expanding its reach.
« I was in the darkness, feeling lost. Then Little Brothers came into my life and promised to stay with me until the end. Since then, I have a new family. »Mrs. Malouin, Elder Friend since 2010
Little Brothers volunteers are the lifeblood of our mission. Our teams train them to accompany our Great Friends on their physical, emotional, and cognitive journeys. Their engagement brings comfort, warmth, and a sense of peace to those who need it.
We are always looking for new people to get involved to support our cause and meet the needs of a growing number of isolated seniors.
