About Intergenerational Connect
23% of Michigan residents are over the age of 60 and that number is only growing. The fact is loneliness and social isolation is a public health concern for people of all ages. Loneliness can contribute to a wide range of health ailments like depression, increased risk of heart attacks and early death.

Intergenerational connect started as first a simple food drive held at a local church. Eventually, the demand was so high it expanded to several churches across the county and went from just giving out food to home items and clothes.

Born out of her love of helping others and by God’s grace, she has been able to transform her god-given talents into this amazing charity.
To care for those who once cared for us is one of the highest honors.
