FRIENDSHIPWORKS: Matching Volunteers with Elders since 1984


FriendshipWorks is looking for volunteers to visit isolated elders in Boston. Friendly Visiting Volunteers are matched with seniors on an individual basis and visit once per week for an hour. Volunteers assist with such tasks as reading mail, writing letters, helping with errands, and most important of all providing companionship. Talk over coffee/tea, go for a walk, play a board game and much more!
