About Us

Statistics show that the incidence of depression in terminally ill patients can range up to 77%. Patients in palliative care ​are typically battling serious illness, and those put on hospice have received a prognosis of six months or less to live. The ​unfortunate reality is that even at the end of their lives, many report feeling depressed, lonely, and socially isolated.

We are a youth-led, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that empowers palliative and hospice care patients. At the core of ​our mission is a commitment to reducing social isolation and depression within the community. We foster connections ​between youth and patients, providing a platform for volunteers around the world to contribute.

A Little More Love thrives on a range of activities designed to uplift patients and their grieving families. We host projects ​in which volunteers from around the world can participate. Through community collection drives, we address essential ​needs and support patients who are unable to afford their own products. Finally, we organize numerous outreach events ​at nursing homes aimed at drawing patients out of social isolation by providing companionship and entertainment. We ​also help direct engaging activities at assisted living facilities, such as game nights and shopping parties.

Our Impact

As part of our journal decorating project,

we were able to donate around 120 decorated ​journals to grieving family members of hospice ​and palliative care patients. Above are some ​pictures sent in by our volunteers.

A Little More Love had its first successful ​social outreach event at United Methodist ​Assisted Living. We aimed to draw patients ​out of their rooms by providing them with ​entertainment and companionship.

We partnered with the Voorhees Library

to host a 2-week long care collection drive ​amassing in over 350+ products and toiletries ​to patients who cannot afford their own. ​Thank you to all who donated!

Our volunteers helped give the patients in ​Lionsgate’s Skilled Nursing Unit a memorable ​senior prom. We talked with the patients, ​wheeled them up the red carpet, and

crowned a prom king and queen!

A Little More Love hosted a game night

for Alzheimer’s patients in Lionsgate’s Safe ​Haven Unit. We had so much fun playing ​games with the patients and brightening

up their evenings!
