FRIENDSHIPWORKS: Matching Volunteers with Elders since 1984


FriendshipWorks is looking for volunteers in South Boston to spend an hour a week chatting, grabbing a coffee, going for walks, playing games, laughing and so much more! With one hour a week you can make the difference in the life of an isolated senior. We are flexible but ask for a commitment from our friendly visiting volunteers as elders will be relying on their new friend. No experience required. Volunteers can visit on weekends and weeknights. Can't commit to a weekly visit? Ask us about our friendly helping program where you would choose the tasks to help out with that fit your schedule.

Have questions? Please call us at (617) 482-1510.
