Our Mission

Bessie’s Hope enhances the quality of life for nursing home and assisted living elders by bringing generations together in mutually rewarding relationships that honor the human spirit and create life-enriching volunteer opportunities for youth, families, individuals, community organizations and businesses.

What are Intergenerational Programs?

Intergenerational programs are social service programs that provide opportunities for different generations to come together to share experiences, knowledge, and skills that are mutually beneficial and foster positive long-term relationships.  Bessie’s Hope is a pioneer in this field and after almost 25 years is still the only organization in the nation that is bringing all segments of the community together and giving them the training, skills and resources necessary to build successful intergenerational relationships.
