About

If you are up for a meaningful assignment, we would love to hear from you. We match select volunteers with individuals living independently and often alone in the community. We call it "neighbor helping neighbor."

Your assignment might include grabbing a cup of coffee, helping with grocery shopping or just visiting. Some volunteers read aloud to the person they visit. Expect laughter, stories and shared experiences with a new friend.

If you enjoy people and want to make an impact in the someone's life, this might be the role for you. Visits can be tailored to your busy schedule and typically occur weekly or biweekly.

For those needing even more flexibility, a volunteer may choose to make assurance calls to lonely elders once or twice weekly.
