About

Matthew likes to play video games, watch movies and draw. Some of his favorite shows include wrestling and The Three Stooges. Matthew would like a community friend volunteer to help him build his confidence and increase his independence.

We all want to belong yet people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) have less opportunities for social interaction and can feel more isolated. Bridge the gap and help people with I/DD find a place in their community.

Volunteers are matched with a person with I/DD and attend outings based on common interests- - like fishing! Groups keep the cost to $10-$15 per outing. Providing a ride for the person you are matched with is one more way you can be of service.

When: Three to four hours once a month for a one year commitment. Many of our volunteers have enjoyed the friendships they’ve made and have continued volunteering long beyond that first year.

Where: In the community where you live.
