Help seniors maintain social connections while in isolation during COVID-19.

Change Lives

DOROT enhances the lives of older adults and volunteers alike. Over 40 years of experience, innovation and success guide our mission.

DOROT can transform the quality of life of older adults, easing the bleak reality of loneliness with friendship, hope and purpose.

Seniors discover new friends and interests, and they age with dignity and grace as valued members of the community.

Connect the Generations

DOROT brings the generations together in a mutually beneficial partnership of older adults, volunteers and professionals.

We share our individual time and talents, interests and concerns to create a bright world of possibility for our older neighbors.

DOROT is building a compassionate community, with life-enhancing programs that foster intergenerational understanding.
