Act Of Listening is a collaboration between students of the University of Saint Francis and the staff 89.1 WBOI funded through an AARP grant. Part of the project’s goal was to alleviate loneliness and isolation in older, low-income adults.

Over the 2018-19 school-year, students went out in teams of two and met a variety of older adults in Fort Wayne. One visit was recorded to bring these conversations to a wider audience.
