Welcome to LITA (Love is the Answer) of Marin.

Founded in 1975, LITA is a nonprofit organization committed to taking the lonely out of aging by matching volunteer friends with elderly residents of Marin County's skilled nursing facilities, assisted living communities, and residential care homes. We facilitate ongoing friendships which help to bring happiness, support and companionship to otherwise lonely lives.

LITA strives to improve the quality of life for these residents through five programs: One-to-One Friends, The Pet Connection, Bridging Generations, LITA Families, and Holiday Gifts for the Elderly. Explore our website to learn more about these programs, make a tax-deductible donation, or submit a request to volunteer. Or, please e-mail or call us at (415) 472-5482.

LITA is a California Volunteers Service Enterprise recognized for our excellent work in involving our volunteers in carrying out our mission. In 2013, LITA became one of the first nonprofit organizations in California to be designated a Service Enterprise.
