About

URGENT! We are looking for someone who is outgoing, friendly and patient to build a friendship with this young man. This is a younger participant with limited mobility and is socially isolated. He is very sweet and kind. He could use a friendly visitor to encourage him to go for a walk around the block and help him with grocery shopping. Do you enjoy cooking and can show him how to make tasty but healthier meals and treats? He could use a hand learning to eat a little healthier but without being overwhelmed. He enjoys video games, Marvel comics and music. There are some supports in place but the current care taker is in need of some respite. Are you this special person who is kind, trustworthy, and friendly? If so, we would love to hear from you!
