FRIENDSHIPWORKS: Matching Volunteers with Elders since 1984

About

FriendshipWorks is looking for "Friendly Visitor" volunteers to visit with lonely elderly in Dorchester, a neighborhood of Boston. Give one hour a week to visit with a neighbor and share stories, have tea, go for walks, and make a huge difference in another person's life. We are looking for residents of Dorchester or people willing to travel there for this opportunity.

FriendshipWorks is a nonprofit organization in downtown Boston that has been providing volunteer support for isolated elderly since 1984. We believe that no one needs be alone, regardless of age or frailty. Join our corps of over 200 volunteers, and help us create a more connected and friendly neighborhood today!

For more information, visit www.fw4elders.org or email Bryan at bperkins@fw4elders.org
