FriendshipWorks is looking for volunteers for our "Friendly Helpers" short-term assistance program. You can help us provide concrete support for isolated elders in Boston and Brookline by helping with tasks like shopping, packing for a move, going to the barber, or picking up medication. These are the kinds of tasks we take for granted, but can be difficult for some of our frailer, isolated neighbors. Your support will help local elders age with dignity, independence, and peace of mind.

This is a flexible opportunity - you can volunteer on your own schedule, when you're available. We only ask that you commit to helping with a minimum of 3 tasks!

Mission Statement

FriendshipWorks, formerly MATCH-UP Interfaith Volunteers, recruits and trains caring individuals to assist elders living in the Boston area. Our mission is to decrease the isolation that too often comes with age and disability, to promote well being, and to enhance the quality of life of elders. We have seen firsthand the difference ongoing companionship and support can make both for our care recipients and our volunteers.

Description

FriendshipWorks offers a variety of support services to elders in the Boston area. We make friendship matches between volunteers and elders. Volunteers often provide companionship, read aloud, take walks, or assist someone with errands. In addition to ongoing companionship, FriendshipWorks provides one-time assistance such as volunteer escorts to and from medical appointments and respite for family caregivers.
