The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
"Our mom loved having Katy visit... Thank you Friend to Friend America!"
There are seniors waiting for visiting friends right now from Everett to Olympia! We need your help! FTFA has been around since 1981 and serves to 5 counties in Washington State and beyond.
Our mission is to recruit, educate and support our volunteers for the purpose of providing a Friendly Visitor for lonely seniors and veterans in need of a friend. "Nationally, 6 out of 10 residents in nursing homes never have a visitor."
FTFA is working to change that one friend at a time. How can you help? Sign up with us and we will get you started. You will visit one resident who lives in a local nursing home, assisted living facility or adult family home. Volunteers are asked to visit a couple times a month at their convenience, for a year. Having a personal visitor relieves feelings of loneliness.
Some training is required so fill out your application today at www.ftfa.org and we will get you started! Thank you for being willing to consider making the life of a Senior better.
