Connection — it’s something we all seek. We need connection to others almost as much as food and water. Feeling connected to others builds self-confidence, helps keep depression at bay, and gives us a feeling of hopefulness.

Isolation and a lack of connection is a huge problem for those living  in poverty, the elderly, and teens. 

For the elderly, lack of mobility, finances and depression are some of the reasons they live isolated lives. For some,  the only people they may see are the folks who deliver Meals on Wheels, groceries, or medicine. At a time when a person has lived a lifetime full of experiences and has tremendous gifts to share, it’s a shame they are isolated in their homes with nothing but a television set to keep them company.
