About

Sometimes a friendly face is all it takes to make someone's day, and Mishkon's Companion Program brings new friendly faces to the individuals in our program!

The Companion Program matches individuals in Brooklyn with a companion; volunteers who will make a short visit, just to say hi. As a companion you can play a game, listen to some music simply have a short conversation with your new Mishkon friend. For individuals who have a developmental disability, your friendship can decrease a sense of isolation and provide a welcome change from day-to-day activities.

We will match you with one of our program's individuals based on your mutual interests and availability. Time commitment and hours are flexible.
