Our Social Purpose 

Our social purpose starts in Lincoln, NE, but it carries on across the world.

The Home Instead network works to create a world where people own their aging journeys. We want all generations to age on their own terms - how and where they want, authentic to who they are as unique individuals, and connected to things that provide them with purpose.

This vision drives us to fearlessly create today, the world we want to grow old in tomorrow through our program Ready to Care by Home Instead®.

Giving Back

Ready to Care by Home Instead helps seniors age with greater hope and success – whether they’re our clients or not. Because we believe everyone deserves to age with grace and dignity, we strive to make that vision a reality by creating a world that is Ready to Care® for each other.

From small acts of kindness to senior care charities, Ready to Care by Home Instead will arm you with tools to help make a difference. Our individual efforts combine to have great and profound effects.

Giving Back to the Community               

June: In honor of National Pen Pal Day on June 1st, we held a letter-writing campaign to help set up members of the community as pen pals with seniors in facilities. We provided 100 letters to four different facilities.


May:  We were fortunate enough to be able to provide, prepare and serve dinner for 150 people at the Matt Talbot Kitchen and Outreach.


April: With the help of local second and third graders, we were able to provide six facilities with Easter cards. To help keep Lincoln beautiful, we cleaned litter along Antelope Creek for Lincoln government watershed management. 

March:  On March 31st, a group of CAREGivers volunteered in the People’s City Mission Help Center. The Help Center works to provide much-needed items to those who need them most at no cost. Volunteers worked with employees to sort through donations of food, clothing, shoes, personal care items, furniture and household goods and helped shoppers navigate the Center.  

February:  To honor American Heart month, we hosted a blood drive for the Nebraska Community Blood Bank to raise awareness for heart disease and prevention and help lower risks of heart disease. Local elementary school students helped us to provide five facilities with Valentine’s Day Cards.  

December:  For our 18th annual, Be a Santa to a Senior drive we were blessed to be able to provide 600 seniors at nine different low-income facilities with over 1,000-holiday gifts. The generosity of the Lincoln community was astounding in helping us bring joy to seniors.  

November:  We held a drive for the Little Free Pantries of Lincoln. Little Free Pantries have food and essential items that are available to anyone who might need it. With the donations, we were able to completely fill two of the city’s pantries. Thanks to local elementary school students we were also able to provide two local facilities with Veteran’s Day cards.  

October: We had an amazing time at the 2021 annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s and were able to raise over $1,000 to help in the fight against this devastating disease.
