“Connection is the energy that is created between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued.”
– Brene Brown
Lifetime Connections Without Walls is a telephone-based program that provides opportunities for socially or physically isolated older adults to connect with others in their community and across the country. We offer social and educational classes, support groups, and friendly conversation – all over the telephone – all from the comfort of home. Classes are facilitated by volunteers, community partners, and contracted professionals. With a variety of class offerings, from the creative to the educational, Lifetime Connections Without Walls is here to connect you.
“Even though we are all so far away in miles, I feel you are in my living room.” – LCWW Participant

How does it work?
LCWW produces four sessions per year (winter, spring, summer, fall). Each quarterly session is about 13 weeks long with breaks for holidays.
Each quarterly session costs $10 which allows you to register for unlimited classes. There is no registration fee for low-income individuals living in Travis or Williamson County, Texas. (Although, we suggest a $3 donation if you’re able to contribute.)
You do not have to live in Central Texas. Participation is open to U.S. residents.
LCWW connects you to the classes you register for via a telephone conference call system. All you have to do is answer your phone to join the call. If you miss the call or prefer to call into the class on your own, this is an option, too. We would just provide you with the call-in telephone number.
From facilitating sessions to reminding participants about sessions, volunteers are a vital component of LCWW. Best of all, you can volunteer virtually. All you need is a computer, internet connection, and phone.

“It is something easy to do from my office and I really enjoy those few minutes I have talking with the individuals on my reminder list. It gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling to know that I may have made someone’s day brighter with just a simple call.” – Jenny, LCWW volunteer
