About

Meals on Wheels San Antonio Elder Friends Program provides volunteer-based companionship and minor assistance to home-bound seniors living in Bexar County. The Elder Friends program aims to alleviate problems of loneliness, isolation, and depression in the growing senior citizen population while providing volunteers with a meaningful friendship they will not forget. Volunteers are matched with an elderly companion to spend time with on a regular basis (usually weekly, depending on the client's needs) and establish a mutually fulfilling relationship.

This is a unique volunteer opportunity to be a friend to your elderly neighbors!
