WBZ-TV featured the great work volunteers at Ethos do to help fulfill our mission of keeping seniors at home, in their own communities. Ethos understands that with aging comes many challenges. Sometimes, a little help to address these challenges can make all the difference in allowing elders to remain at home. We have a variety of free services than can help, as Ethos connects community volunteers with elders in Hyde Park, Jamaica Plain, Mattapan, Roslindale or West Roxbury.

For 39 years, Ethos' goal has been to provide the elders of southwest Boston with quality, affordable and culturally-appropriate home and community-based care so that they can remain in their homes. As we enter our Annual Fundraising Drive, you can ensure our most needy elders have access to vital in-home services, as well as inter-generational social, educational, and recreational activities for them and their support circles.
To mark World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, Ethos staff, volunteers and a dedicated group of seniors staged a unique demonstration at Roche Bros. supermarket in West Roxbury; a flash mob, to draw attention to the physical, emotional or sexual abuse, financial exploitation, neglect, abandonment or self-neglect that many seniors secretly face.
