About

Volunteer 3 hours a week visiting a lonely home-bound senior. Just a simple conversation can make all the difference to a lonely senior. Help seniors in our community feel connected and less isolated by providing them with a home visit once a week. While helping them improve their quality of life, you will also gain a friend for life.

Seniors are waiting throughout Bexar County! There's someone near you!

Only 4 hours of training is required before you start a new friendship! We train at two different locations.

You need to be caring, patient and compasionate and at least 21. We require a minimum of a 6 month commitment.

Questions? Call Bev Strickland, Elder Friends Program Coordinator at 210-599-7405 option 5.
