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.
