Programs and Volunteering
LITA's volunteers bring love, laughter and ongoing friendship to residents of long-term care facilities, many of whom have no other visitors.


Your contribution will go a long way towards helping LITA recruit, match and orient volunteer friends with isolated elderly and disabled residents of skilled nursing facilities, assisted living communities, and board and care homes.  Thank you for your care and concern.

Facilities
We can best support your facility's residents when we work together to identify residents who would benefit from a LITA Volunteer.

Who We Are
Since 1975, LITA Marin has provided friendship and support to the elderly of Marin County, California. As a nonprofit, we have more than 300 volunteers of every age that bring a tender heart and a listening ear to long-term care facility residents. LITA establishes friendships for someone who may be alone or does not receive regular visitors.

Mission Statement
The mission of LITA is to improve the quality of life for persons living in skilled nursing facilities, residential care facilities, and retirement residences throughout Marin County by providing volunteer visitors. LITA promotes friendships that lessen isolation and loneliness, and increase public awareness of the needs of residents of long-term care facilities.

California Volunteers Service Enterprise
In 2013, LITA was named a California Volunteers Service Enterprise (CVSE). A Service Enterprise is an organization that leverages volunteers and their skills across all leadership levels, and in all departments, to successfully deliver on the social mission of the organization. While nonprofits continue to face an environment of doing more with less, the most successful organizations excel in volunteer engagement practices that lead to greater organizational capacity and community impact.
