About

Become part of our Friendly Caller Program and connect with home-bound seniors by phone on a weekly basis. Your friendly voice will provide an isolated senior with a positive social interaction and reassurance that they are not forgotten. Who knows... you may be forging friendships that wil last for years!

You can serve without a huge time commitment or without ever having to leave home. Each Friendly Caller volunteer is assigned the names of two home-bound seniors and will place a phone call to each of them weekly. The calls can be as little as a couple of minutes or perhaps as much 15-20 minutes once you've gotten to know each other. In some cases, our Friendly Caller may be the only person the senior connects with all day, so this volunteer opportunity is crucial!
