Spanish Speaking-volunteer needed to make friendly phone calls to seniors on Meals on Wheels
The Health Trust
Friends from Meals on Wheels is a new friendly visitor program for seniors receiving Meals on Wheels in Santa Clara County.
We are in need of a Spanish speaking volunteer to make weekly friendly phone calls to seniors that are homebound and lonely. The phone calls are conversational and involve asking the senior how they're doing, etc.
We ask for a commitment of about 1 hour/week for 4-6 months.
Volunteers must be able to meet with program staff quarterly (virtually every 3 months).
The completion of a volunteer application and brief training is required.
If interested, please contact the Community Partnerships Supervisor.

Our Mission: To build health equity in the Silicon Valley.
A healthier Silicon Valley for everyone.
We at The Health Trust believe that if Silicon Valley is a community where innovation is changing the world, then it also can be a community where innovation changes the lives of everyone - especially our most vulnerable residents - for the better.
As we strive to make our vision reality, we reflect the values of Silicon Valley. When we tackle a problem, we take the broad view. We rely on expertise, partnerships and best practices to generate solutions that will have the greatest impact on those we serve. We invest in projects that are sustainable, show measurable results and provide the greatest return on investment for the community.
With a strong emphasis on prevention, we focus our work through three initiatives: Healthy Living, Healthy Aging and Healthy Communities. Through direct services, we are helping one person at a time. And through policy advocacy and grantmaking, we are changing the local environment to promote healthy eating, healthy aging and healthy living.
