About Us

Changing the way people age in Southwest Florida.

The Friendship Centers

Our Mission: To promote health, dignity and quality of life throughout the journey of aging.

The Friendship Centers is a nonprofit network in Southwest Florida with services that meet the needs of people 50 and older. Since the early 1970s our organization has led the country in developing innovative, cost-effective approaches to address the health and wellness needs of older adults. We touch the lives of thousands of older adults and their families every year.

A belief in “People Helping People” has been the foundation of the Friendship Centers for more than four decades. Volunteers serve in nearly every facet of the organization. Our award-winning centers and clinics have drawn national and international attention as models for the delivery of programs and services to older adults.
