Our Mission

Friends for Life is a 501(c)(3) charity that was founded in Waco, Texas, in September of 1989 to improve the quality of life for seniors and people with disabilities, particularly those who are without family to care for them.

Friends for Life helps the elderly and people with disabilities live independently as long as possible, protects and cares for those who are unable to care for themselves, and brings generations together to enrich lives.
