Welcome to Daughter For The Day!
Daughter For The Day, Inc. (DFTD) is a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization dedicated to providing seniors with free one-on-one personal assistance.
With the help of volunteers, we strive to provide seniors with a "daughter"or "son" to help them complete those tasks which are essential to healthy daily living.
Our goal is to help them reconnect with society and rekindle their sense of independence without compromising their security.
Daughter For The Day was founded by Tonja Lark in 2005, as a result of a special relationship with her grandmother. She would frequently reminisce about the memorable moments she spent with her "Nana", like taking her to the doctor, to the grocery store and her favorite store "Garfinckels"- followed by the mandatory ice cream cone stop, that would always put a smile on her Nana's face. Those priceless moments of being "girlfriends for the day" meant the world to both of them.
Spending this quality time with her Nana, gave Tonja an appreciation for senior citizens. She realized that there were many other seniors who needed someone to show them a little love and attention. Seeing this growing need for assistance, the idea of providing senior citizens with a "daughter for the day" was conceived.
