Friendly Visitors are compassionate individuals and groups who engage in meaningful activities with residents to build social connections and enhance their quality of life.

Even though in-person visitation from community volunteers is restricted, virtual Friendly Visitor experiences provide safe social distancing opportunities for you, your family, church, corporation, small business, school,college, non-profits, social or civic group to make a positive impact and a big differences in the lives of older adults who are adversely affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
