Mission: Lori’s Hands transforms students’ understanding of community health by matching them with individuals living with chronic illness in meaningful, helping relationships. Community members receive in-home support and, in turn, educate next-generation health leaders about the experience of living with chronic illness.
Vision: Lori's Hands envisions a world in which all individuals diagnosed with chronic illness can achieve high quality of life while aging in place in their communities.

Each week, more than 100 community members receive visits from our more than 175 college student volunteers in the Newark, DE community. Our students help with grocery shopping, housework, and other daily tasks. Our clients teach our students about their experiences living with chronic illness. In some cases, they also teach our students about history, cooking, music, art and more!
