Are you our secret superhero? A respite opportunity is available for responsible, kind, and friendly volunteer. We have a participant that could use some additional company as he recovers from a fall. He enjoys watching and talking about football and golf. He is a Professor of Sociology so if you are fascinated by groups and how they get along, this might be ideal for you. He is a quiet, gentle, older man who likes board games, people watching in Rittenhouse Square and having a friend to share a meal or a cup of coffee with. If you are compassionate, kind, friendly and responsible, then this is the volunteer opportunity for you.
