Friendly Visitor

Would you like to be a good neighbor?– Volunteer today!

Our Friendly Visitor program matches isolated older adults and baby boomers with volunteers that provide companionship through weekly visits, phone calls and grocery shopping. This volunteer service provides needed social connections and enables older adults to live as independently as possible while enhancing their quality of life.

We match volunteers with older adults who are in need of companionship or those who need help with shopping. Volunteers are asked to make at least a six month commitment to the program, by calling, visiting or shopping at least one time a week. Clients do not accompany the volunteer to the store, and times are scheduled based on mutual convenience. Since 1997, this program has helped hundreds of people find stimulating companionship as well as life- long friends. Volunteers build rapport and individual relationships resulting in the development of lasting friendships. Students are encouraged to volunteer and participate in the program with a parent. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us for more information and an application.
