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.
CompeerCORPS matches veteran volunteers with veterans who are recovering from a mental illness. Our trained volunteers offer friendship and support to individuals struggling with PTSD, depression, anxiety and other mental health disorders.
CompeerCORPS volunteers are unique: this is a veterans helping other veterans program. By giving this person the gift of friendship, you can serve as a support and mentor.
Volunteers get together with their match one hour a week (or four hours a month) doing activities both enjoy, such as watching a ballgame, going for a walk, or grabbing a cup of coffee.
