About

"MAKE A FRIEND, CHANGE TWO LIVES." It is as simple as being a friend. If you have four hours a month to spend with a youth in our community who is dealing with mental illness, please contact us today! We offer ongoing training and support, as well as free and low-cost activities for you and your Compeer Friend. Compeer Rochester uses community volunteers to provide guidance and support to individuals who are looking to improve their well-being as a supplement to mental health treatment. It is our hope that with early intervention, mental illness will just be a small part of who the youth of our program are and not define them for a lifetime. For over 40 years, we have helped people in our community who are isolated and lacking socialization, all through the power of 1:1 mentoring relationships.
