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.
What makes LITA friendships so special?
Several wonderful LITA volunteers and their dear friends who reside in long-term care facilities around Marin share their stories in LITA's video. Funded by a grant from Marin County Supervisor Judy Arnold's office, this heart-warming video was produced by Jazzed About Media and narrated by LITA Board Member Peter Boam.
