Friendly Visitor
Lifting spirits, making friends

Please note: during COVID-19, Friendly Visitor volunteers are making weekly calls rather than meeting in person. There are so many more seniors than ever who are sheltering-in-place and isolated - and a friendly phone call can brighten up their day!

Become a Friendly Visitor volunteer for an isolated elder in Fremont, Union City, Newark, Hayward, or greater Hayward area. Spend 1-2 hours a week visiting with the senior and enjoy good conversation, laughter, board games, a shared hobby - or go out to lunch, shopping, or appointments. Choose a mutually agreeable day and time.
