Lori's Hands pairs undergraduate students with individuals living with chronic illness in meaningful, helping relationships.
Ed, a widowed Korean War veteran, has been homebound for more than fifteen years. Lori's Hands volunteers help him with household chores and also spend a part of every visit making conversation and swapping stories. Ed shares that Lori's Hands volunteers are his only consistent friendly visitors and that they have "renewed [his] faith in the youth of America." They've given him something to look forward to again.
