The Friends Foundation

Doing Good Deeds to Meet the Elderly's Needs

19 years ago this month, a group of local volunteers came together to help the elderly of Dripping Springs with a simple goal: help the older generation while they continue to live independently at home.

The Friends Foundation’s flagship program, Our Daily Bread, is a hot meal service for homebound elderly in the greater Dripping Springs community. Since the program’s inception, more than 60,000 meals have been delivered.

TFF also provides additional services for people 60 and older in the Dripping Springs area. The Lifeline program provides medical alert devices that summon help by simply pushing a button on a bracelet or necklace. In addition, the Friends Foundation helps residents in their homes with financial assistance, smoke alarm installation, and other home maintenance programs. 

The foundation helps fund special programs and activities to enhance the lives of the residents in the Hill Country Nursing and Rehab center. It also provides dignity and comfort through its Butterflies are Free program, which serves those nearing the end of their lives in nursing homes.
