Now offering services in Ontonagon, Baraga and Marquette


Inspired by our founder Armand Marquiset’s desire to “spread across the earth igniting little fires of love”, we began to provide friendship services for the lonely, isolated elderly in our neighboring counties of Ontonagon in June 2011 and Baraga in June of 2012.

We have been celebrating Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter with our elderly friends in Ontonagon since 1987 and Baraga since 2001 and determined the need to begin providing more of our special services. Few social service agencies address the emotional needs associated with our mission. Little Brothers brings an innovative approach to assisting the elderly, one that is founded on friendship and builds from there. As our former national executive director, Roger Nash, once said, “First you have love for the person, and the service comes out of that loving concern.”

We are currently offering two services, friendly visiting and holiday meals in Ontonagon and Baraga Counties and hosted our first Christmas dinner in Marquette in 2013.
