About

Compeer for Adults and Seniors
Friendship can change a person's life. Good things happen when you have a friend. Friends listen. They share. Friends are the best kind of medicine for someone who's striving for good mental health. Through Compeer you can be a caring friend to someone. It can be as simple as going for a walk, seeing a movie, or just picking up the phone. It can take as little as an hour a week. Compeer matches volunteers with adults and seniors ages 18 and over. We have about 170 people matched with Compeer volunteers, but there are still many more waiting for a friend in Erie County. They might even live in your neighborhood. Please contact sarah@compeerbuffalo.org if you would like more information.

Compeer for Kids
Compeer Kids range in age from 3-17. There are more than 100 Compeer programs in the United States, but Compeer of Greater Buffalo has the largest kids program. Each year we make a difference in the lives of hundreds of kids who need a friend. Many Compeer kids don't have the support that they need to succeed. A mentor impacts a child in big ways by simply spending quality time with them. Compeer kids love to share their stories. For more information contact karen@compeerbuffalo.org.
