Our Mission & Motto

Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly is a national network of non-profit, volunteer-based organizations committed to relieving isolation and loneliness among the elderly. We offer to people of good will the opportunity to join the elderly in friendship and the celebration of life.


"Flowers before bread" is our founder Armand Marquiset's motto. It expresses his philosophy that everyone needs love and friendship in their life. It is the human touch that makes life worth living.

Our motto "where service to the elderly begins by being a friend" reminds us that the most important gift we bring when we knock on the door is the gift of friendship. With every service we provide and with every gesture that we do, we do it in the spirit of friendship.

Our services are all free of charge to the elderly.
