Seniors often need help or companionship – but there might not be anyone to call. Papa is a new service that connects them with college students for help with household tasks, transportation, technology–and companionship.

This allows seniors to maintain independence and stay in their homes rather than assisted living facilities. It also provides college students with a great way to earn extra cash and develop work experience on a flexible schedule. It’s accessible through an app or a simple phone call to help seniors who aren’t as tech-savvy.
