The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Become a friend! Compeer matches community volunteers in one-to-one friendships with adults who are living with mental illness.
Community volunteers spend four hours per month (for at least a year) enjoying the company of their new friend while they engage in activities that both enjoy. Training, ongoing support, and supervision are provided to our volunteers. Compeer offers several fun group activities (picnics, movies, workshops, etc.) for all Compeer participants each year.

Thanks in advance for your support, and we hope to hear from you soon!
