Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer with the Home Friends Program. The Home Friends program was created in 1987 to provide companionship and support for the senior citizens of the Princeton area.
Home Friend volunteers are matched with a Princeton or surrounding area senior. Home Friends provide weekly visits which may involve conversation, walks, assistance with routine errands or work on a mutually enjoyed hobby.
The minimum time commitment is one hour a week. Many meaningful and lasting friendships have developed with HomeFriends over the years. Thank you for your willingness to give of yourself.
