Centro Tyrone Guzman

Centro Tyrone Guzman is located in the Phillips neighborhood in Minneapolis. Founded in 1974 by and for the Latino community, Centro has supported the Chicano Latino communities since 1974. Our mission is: “To contribute to the well-being and full participation of Latinos through education and family engagement.” The student will help with activities in the Health and Wellness Department.


Little Sisters of the Poor - Sacred Heart Residence

As Little Sisters of the Poor, we care for the elderly poor in the spirit of humble service that we have received from our foundress, St. Jeanne Jugan. We welcome the Elderly as we would Jesus Christ himself and serve them with love and respect until death.

Sacred Heart Residence is a Catholic home for the aged, serving the neediest elderly of every race and religion. It is located in the heart of a residential area in midtown Mobile and has been operating at the same site since 1901.


Friendship Center's Healthy Aging Clinic & Resurrection House

The Senior Friendship Center's Rubin Healthy Aging Clinic provides low cost or free medical care to seniors aged 50 and older who are below the poverty level. The services include medical care, dentistry, adult daycare, and a senior center where independent seniors can come for the day and participate in scheduled activities in a safe environment. The student checks patients in, records their vital signs and chief health concern, shadows during some procedures, and completes necessary paper work. Students also work with Resurrection House.

Mother Teresa House

Mother Teresa House provides care for people with terminal illnesses, regardless of their social, religious, or financial background. Volunteers provide 24/7 care by offering personal physical care and their company to the guests of the house. Mother Teresa House gives preference to those who are in greatest need. As a caregiver, the student assists with the basic needs of the patients from feeding and dressing to offering love and companionship. This site requires both compassion and maturity in the face of life and death.


St. Patrick's Center

St. Patrick's Center provides emergency food, meals, respite for the homeless, clothing, transportation, and recreational activities for people in need on Wilmington's east side. Our services are provided in a welcoming, dignified, respectful, and caring environment. We recognize that people require more than just basic needs-a person's desire to be respected and accepted is not diminished because they are poor and that desire does not fade as they become elderly.


Divine Providence Village

Divine Providence Day Program provides day program servics for men and women with intellectual disabilities on the grounds of Our Lady of Fatima Parish serving individuals with a primary diagnosis of mental retardation 21 years and older. The student will have direct, daily contact with serving and supporting men and women with intelluctual disabilities in the Adult Training Facility (ATF) of the Day program. They require assistance for their personal needs, activities of daily living, activities in the program, feeding and other areas.

Austin Groups for the Elderly

Austin Groups for the Elderly provide four programs working with older adults, their caregivers and families. The adult day care provides a full day of stimulating activities with oversight by a nurse. The SeniorNet Computer Learning Center provides low cost, peer-based computer training. The Caregiver Resource Center helps both family and professional caregivers with support services. The AGE building houses and advises 20 not-for-profit organizations. The student works in all four programs.

Student Responsibilities:


Villa Guadalupe

Villa Guadalupe is an assisted living facility for the elderly run by the Little Sisters of the Poor. The Villa is considered a mission home, as evidenced by its small size and the unique population of Navajo residents. The student participates in daily prayers and mass with the community and performs a variety of tasks participating in activities and exercises with the elderly, meal preparation, coffee time, laundry, and therapy for the residents. In addition, the student works at the front desk as a receptionist and drives residents to appointments and outings.


St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care

St. Ann Center strives to prevent premature institutionalization of persons who are elderly or have disabilities. The Center brings clients of all ages together for planned and informal activities. Children benefit from positive one-on-one attention from caring adults, and adults gain a sense of purpose by sharing wisdom with children. The student plays with and feeds three to seven-month-old infants in the daycare. In the afternoons the student helps physically and cognitively disabled adults in the adult daycare.
