WHO WE ARE
Many seniors who would prefer to live independently are faced with the need to move to a care facility or to live with a family member far from their community. Trained volunteers from Lend A Hand help seniors stay comfortably and safely in their homes, and age in place as our neighbors. Thanks to our volunteers, Lend A Hand has been providing free services to seniors in central Tucson neighborhoods since 2006. We are proud to say no senior is ever charged for our services.
WHO WE HELP
Lend A Hand serves seniors ages 60 or older, as well as younger individuals with disabilities, in 12 central Tucson neighborhoods.

"I have a job. I was told that it didn’t matter: I was a community member with a serious health issue who did not drive. They told me about the socials, museum visits, and rides available for doctor’s appointments and grocery shopping. I also receive fresh produce delivered twice a month to my doorstep! Lend A Hand has significantly improved the quality of my life: I don’t
have to worry about getting to a doctor’s appointment, finding a ride to the bank, or meeting new people—clients and volunteers.”
“Tom Miller was a writer whose work I’d read and enjoyed. Tom wrote for Rolling Stone and other, more obscure, music journals of the day. There was a second (or so I thought) writer named Tom Miller, who wrote about cultural interactions between the United States and Latin America. Turns out, it was the same guy. Turns out, I owned two of his books and even a CD. As a LAH volunteer, it’s been a real pleasure getting to know him.”
“Lend a Hand has been a terrific service for me. Twice a week they give me rides to and from physical therapy, or the doctor’s office. This is something my wife, a full-time teacher, cannot fit into her schedule. I’ve gotten to know many of the drivers and enjoy their company. When my condition deteriorated somewhat and I had to use a wheelchair the Lend a Hand volunteers installed wooden ramps in my house.”
