FRIENDSHIPWORKS: Matching Volunteers with Elders since 1984

About

Our Friendly Visting Program is looking for volunteers to do one-on-one visits to isolated elders in Hyde Park. As a volunteer, you can make a difference in the lives of these elders needing visitors. We will match you with an elder that you will form a friendship with. Volunteers are needed to spend an hour a week visiting a senior in Hyde Park. During the visit, volunteers may share conversations, go for walks, watch a favorite television show, do an errand together, or share other common interests.
