Give today to connect college students with hospitalized children and isolated older adults.

"The grandfather she never had."

When Ashley, a pre-dental student at the University of Miami, was paired with her Buddy, Juan, a 94-year-old retired airline mechanic, she was not sure what they would have in common. But, as they began to talk, she realized there was so much more than meets the eye. Over phone calls throughout the pandemic, a beautiful relationship blossomed. Ashely says Juan has become "the grandfather she never had."

Now that they are both vaccinated, they look forward to meeting in person and seeing each other's smile, while they continue to learn from each other and share stories and laughter.

With your support, you can help us reach our goal of pairing 110 college students, like Ashley, with buddies, young and old, in 2022!


About StudentsCare:

StudentsCare's Senior Buddy Program started in April 2020, in response to increased isolation among older adults in residential facilities, brought upon by the pandemic.

Since 2013, StudentsCare's Pediatric Buddy Program has provided individualized support, friendship and laughter to hospitalized children across the country.

It takes a dedicated team of professionals to provide our students with proper training and resources to create these impactful connections. Your support makes this possible.
