A little about us
Tender Loving Kindness (TLK), a nonprofit, based in Omaha, Nebraska, formed in February 2020 just as life across the U.S. forever changed because of the COVID19 pandemic. In an instant, the vision of TLK Executive Director Terri Mahoney to support elderly who report feeling socially isolated and who experience chronic loneliness became even more pressing to make a reality. Our network of volunteers, or kindness companions as we prefer to call them, across the Omaha metro desire to "show up and show kindness" that makes a lasting difference in the lives of seniors desiring companionship. TLK endeavors to team up with Big O organizations dedicated to supporting the well-being of seniors, including area assisted and longterm care facilities, care-at-home agencies and faith-based communities.
"My life's work is finding ways to enrich the lives of seniors who are seeking meaningful companionship and desiring additional life purpose."
- Terri Mahoney, Ex. Director
